Research papers are usually at the front of research activities, which is far away from any introducing character. Quite the contrary of what you are asking for: you need to read a lot of introductory textbooks in order to understand research papers.

My suggestion is to read some historical papers instead, e.g. Noether, Einstein, Planck.

The Principia is a bit mighty, and possibly too old-fashioned. I think Einstein is doable.

The Principia is impenetrable. Especially in the original Latin.

I'm not a big fan of original papers for this purpse. They are intended for experts to explain theories in an early stage of development to other experts. Not to teach theories that have been around for a while to non-experts.
