used to be really impressed at really long lit reviews that cite like 50 papers. like how can you write multiple articles a *year* like that??

turns out these people have been citing the same 40 papers in every article, and just keeping up with the latest research and incorporating that as they go along

still impressed, but it doesn't seem impossible now :)

@nimirea It's also quite possible they didn't read all of what they are citing...

@nimirea True scholarship is block citing all your buddies!
