Jones’ Rules of Research


  1. If it doesn’t work, try plugging it in.
  2. Look at your data.
  3. In making a presentation, have a point.
  4. Cite references – Nobody cares what your opinion is.
  5. Prepare questions before you go to the literature.  You will never find what you are looking for unless you know what you are looking for.
  6. Before you take data, make sure something is happening.
