Thanks for the suggestion! I took it to ChatGPT to explore alternatives, and “Guess-and-Check” hit the mark. “Predicive learning” was a good starting point.
Using this technique in scientific writing is a game-changer. It helps you approach a paper with a curious and critical mindset, asking questions like:
How did the authors likely design the experiment to achieve their goals?
How will they present their findings?
Will the results be crystal clear or a bit murky?
What kind of claims will they make?
Any red flags or limitations to keep an eye out for?
How does this paper fit in with others on the same topic?
And the big question… what surprising insights can I uncover?
