This week featured a couple of interesting papers from friends with Hsu describing a new shark species and Eric, Peter, and Andrew describing the osteology of a cool fish. There were also a few interesting larval fish papers in the mix and a couple on copepods and phytoplankton for some papers I'm working on. The Otodontidae tooth paper (#11) was wild; great work there.

Hi everyone! I'm trying something different this year.
It turns out that I read a lot of marine science papers. I read most of them to support the writing of manuscripts and grant proposals, projects that I'm actively working on. Quite a few are papers published by my friends, and I like to know about their research because I have smart, cool friends. Some I read because I'm bored on a random Tuesday night, and I go down some weird scientific rabbit hole on a topic I know nothing about. It's a fun life.
There's an initiative out there - I saw it on Twitter - where people document their adventures across the landscape of the scientific literature by keeping track of all of the peer-reviewed manuscripts they read. The goal is to get through one paper a day for a year - thus #365Paper Challenge.
I'm keeping track of all the papers that I read in 2021. I'll be posting citations and links to all of them in subsequent blog posts in this section of my little website. New posts will go up sometime on Friday. I suspect that most papers will be presented without much context, just links to the paper. For others, I may toss in a sentence or or two of my thoughts.
I'm not sure if anybody outside of me cares that much about my reading habits, but that's okay. Maybe a reader will discover an interesting manuscript. If nothing else, I'll have an easy way to go back to papers I've read, since the links will already be here on the site.
Anyway, look for more on that soon. If you are participating in the #365Paper Challenge, let me know in the comments below or on Twitter!
