Over the years, I have shared my views on various aspects of scientific research with the members of my research group, friends and colleagues. While I keep teaching and mentoring students and postdocs, a lot was said before more profoundly by other people. So, I have decided to compile a short list of documents available out there that best resonate with my own opinion on several research-related matters and ask all the group members to read it attentively. Also, there is a small collection of useful books in the students' office, so if you want to read them for free, please, join the group.
