New to the art of writing here. How exactly does one start writing a review article? How are your workflows like (i.e. plan/read/write)?

Don't know if it's a good idea to start your writing career with a review article...but if you want or have to, first choose a good (i.e. not too comprehensive and broad spectrum) topic but something quite specific and concise. And something that you are interested enough in.
And yes, read...Posted Image

One must presume that long and short arguments contribute to the same end. - Epicurus
...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

That is....if she posts at all.

i would not recommend writing an review without someone who has a strong background in the field you are planing to cover ...this someone can be an PI, PhD or a retired professor ...somone who can give you some guidance and someone who knows where to start and where to end. Don't try to do it on your own.
