60/60: 60 short videos for PhD students in 60 days

A few days ago, I talked about filtering the literature. There are 3 main criteria for this; quality of research, relevance to your work and influence on the field. But how can you judge the quality of the work? How can you tell good work from bad? You have to get experience doing your own research. Without this, the only experience you have is what other people have said. Start getting practical experience of research and analysis as early as possible.
