Writing scientific papers is a difficult activities. Conventional wisdom suggests that it is not that easy to learn (and teach) how to write a good research paper, i.e., a paper with a clear statement of the problem being addressed, the proposed solution(s), and results achieved. It must describe clearly what has been done before on the problem, and what is new.

As a PhD student you should not underestimate the challenges that writing a research paper presents.

Not surprisingly, being able to write a good paper starts from the ability to read a paper. This is nice reading by S. Keshav, "How to read a paper". Below a list of useful pointers that might help you in this dauting task.
