I will be working as an assistant for the first time in my life soon. I wanted to ask your opinions on teaching people to learn from physics journals. When I started doing real research, I think the first problem I came across was that reading journals is hard, and learning from them is even harder. Since there are no exercises or problems in peer-reviewed articles, studying them tends to make people passive. An extra effort comes from following the many citations in the journals. Does anyone have experience teaching people through reading physics articles?
