How To Read a Paper

Reading a paper is not the same as reading a blogpost or a novel. Here are a few handy resources to help you get started.

Contributing Guidelines

We have a few guidelines in place to keep the repo clean and easy to navigate. We recommend that you follow these conventions in your pull-request for a speedy merge. Note that every pull request we receive must have Two-Thumbs-Up minimum from PWL organizers/collaborators to be merged.

Follow the group's ethos

We want to help bring academic research closer to practitioners and we strive to:

  • Keep the quality of papers listed high: Books, blogposts, and/or reference pdfs don't go through the same review process that academic papers do and we won't add them to this repo.
  • Help people understand why a paper is important: We ask that you include with your commit an update to the directory README with a short justification of why you love this paper (for example: A paper might be interesting because it spawned a new domain, it was exceptionally well-written, or perhaps it was completely wrong about something.)

Respect content licenses

  • We will only merge pull requests that contain research papers that allow digital distribution. Papers whose copyright prohibits redistribution will not be accepted; for example license 1 from the ACM digital library.
  • We encourage papers that do not allow digital distribution to be added to a README in the appropriate subject's folder. For example, the distributed systems README.

Follow our naming convention

  • Directory names are undercased and separated by underscores (example: artificial_intelligence)
  • Paper names are undercased and separated by dashes (example: out-of-the-tar-pit.pdf). Use the full title when possible.
