    I want to read cosmology articles.Is there any paper archive site ? I know arXiv but Is there another sources which I can read new papers (dailly or weekly updated ) ? And Is there any site which include only cosmological paper (It s not so important for me but I want to ask it again ) What's your suggestion to these question.If you want to add something I ll be glad
    Thank you

    What's wrong with arXiv? Since the vast majority of papers are posted there, at best an alternative would duplicate it.

    Nothing wrong with it just I thought that maybe there were other good paper archive sources

    arXiv really is the best option. I really don't know of anywhere else (that's as reputable).

    I am looking articles on cosmology (or astrophysics part )I want to say articles subjects are so poor ? Dont you think like that ? You guys told me you need to read article.But articles are talking about something which its not important for me example "Star Formation in Disk Galaxies. III. Does stellar feedback result in cloud death?"
    or Statistical methods for the analysis of rotation measure grids in large scale structures in the SKA era but this look like good "An introduction to inflation after Planck: from theory to observations" I hope you understand what I mean.What should I do about reading part ? Should I read what's look like interseting title ? Should I read only great cosmologists paper ? Or it's just a stupid question ?

    It's not quite clear how the authors of cosmology papers are supposed to know what is important for you. They tend to focus on what they think is currently important for other cosmologists (*). Maybe a textbook is more suitable for your interests. Textbooks should implicitly contain an extract of the most important cosmology papers, albeit with a little delay.

    (*) okay, let's be honest: they tend to focus on what they can get published in a peer review journal, hopefully with a lot of citations. But there is hope that this correlates with "important for other cosmologists".

    That's what real science looks like, I'm afraid.

    Well, why do you want to read cosmology articles? What is important to you? Why not seek out those articles?
