It is your job as a scientist to read the literature, keep abreast of findings of interest and integrate this knowledge with your own work.
We have amazing tools for doing so that were not available in times past, everything gets fantastically better all the time.
If you are a PI you even have minions to help you! And colleagues! And manuscripts and grants to review which catch you up.
So I ask you, people who spout off about the "filter" problem.....
What IS the nature of this problem? How does it affect your working day?
Since most of you deploy this in the context of wanting fewer papers to be published in fewer journals...how is that better? What is supposed to disappear from your view?
The stuff that you happen not to be interested in?
