Finding the algorithm: An introduction to reading and understanding scientific papers

I love this concise primer on how to take apart a scientific paper, and it translates almost perfectly to the literature I commonly assign in my upper-level undergraduate classes as well.

JBC [Journal of Biological Chemistry] papers, as is with articles in most biomedical journals, have a basic structure/algorithm.  Once you’ve mastered the algorithm, presenting the paper is much easier.
