How to read a paper
The British Medical Journal published a series of articles on how to read a paper back in the mid 1990s. These articles have stood the test of time* and are still relevant and more importantly, helpful as you seek to decipher what you're reading in the nursing, medical, and scientific literature.
*for the most part -- there references to resources such as SilverPlatter, CD-ROMS, etc. that no longer exist but the content of the articles is still relevant.
