I really respect those folks that can scan six or seven papers a day, every day, and make sense of the results. When I try to chase down an impression, I'll do the work, but it's a matter of chasing what comes in front of me, not scanning the same sources consistently.
In other words, when it comes to sources, I'm a searcher, not a browser.
