Course: Cite to Write

Become a Literature Wizard, take notes that magically re-appear just when you need them, and build a science-grade web of knowledge that will fuel your research insights for years to come

I was sitting at my desk at University, looking at the huge stack of papers I had printed the last couple of days. Double-sided, two pages on one, and I was still looking at a foot and a half worth of printouts weighting on my desk.

And my mind. I had been grinding to read all the literature in my field, and yet I felt like I knew less than before. And there was new stuff coming in, waiting to be added to the pile, every day.

Now, it was interesting what I got to read, that wasn't the problem. It was just too much. Even more so because I had to distill all of this down into something manageable that I could actually use in my dissertation proposal. The deadline for submission was still a bit off, but it felt like it was approaching faster every day.

Let's be honest: no-one has read all the literature, not even Reviewer #2

When I shared my frustration with colleagues, someone a bit further along the journey told me a secret: no-one has read all the literature, not even Reviewer #2.

And, that was the real kicker, no-one cares if you have read all of the literature either. It might seem that way, but having read the literature isn't as important at knowing how deeply to read the literature and how to use the literature to make informed arguments.

Nobody teaches us this! They give us advice like "give a comprehensive overview of the literature" or "it's important to theoretically ground your research question in your proposal". But what does that MEAN?

Understanding the literature is important, and we do have to theoretically ground our research questions, for sure. But if I read every single paper in my (small!) field at the same, minute level of detail, I would be sixty by the time I'd be done. My dissertation committee would not be around anymore.

Not to speak even about new literature being added every year (publish or perish, anyone?) - and another question: how do I process everything that I'm reading so I can actually use it when I'm writing myself?

What if you had X-ray vision for your literature?

So I decided to develop a process that would help me manage the volume of papers I had already collected and stay on top of my field going forward. What I had in mind was not a way to just read really fast, but to build a sort of X-ray vision for my literature that would help me see what was under the surface, show me the information I needed to know and then use that efficiently when writing papers.

Or, to put it in the language of my favorite novels: I set out to become a literature wizard.

Imagine that - you're working on a draft for a conference submission, and instead of manually digging through old printouts or scrolling frantically through highlighted PDFs to find the one key citation you need to make your point...all you do is type a couple of words and not just that quote but all your thoughts on the related literature appear. Like magic.

For my Masters degree, I had built a process that allowed me to write Grade A seminar papers from idea to submission in 20 hours flat. By tuning that process to the volume of reading in a PhD program and porting it to Roam Research to take it to a whole new level, I built a workflow that helps me minimize the dead of looming deadlines and lets me think better and write easier about my research.

What if you could take the years of experimentation, testing and learning I've done and apply them to your OWN research process? Not just as high-level overviews, but as detailed, step-by-step guides for improving your own way of reading, taking notes and writing? Now you can.

Introducing Cite to Write: How to become a Literature Wizard, take notes that magically re-appear just when you need them, and build a science-grade web of knowledge that will fuel your research insights for years to come.

Here is what's included:

Cite to Write covers the entire process of academic writing

  • Managing your literature - without friction and manually formatting citations or entering bibliographic information
  • Using Roam Research - simple, easy to follow tutorials for learning the most fundamental features of Roam, without headache or confusion
  • How to read - the different levels of reading and how to take notes that are useful for years to come
  • How to process your notes - the concepts and processes that make your notes an evergreen resource you can draw from instead of a wilderness of confusion
  • How to evaluate what you read - strategies and mental models that help you cut through the fluff and see what's really going on in your field
  • From notes to writing to submission ready draft - a complete workflow that takes your literature notes, uses them as the building blocks for fast and well-reasoned writing and leaves you with a nicely formatted PDF or Word document ready for submission

What Students are Saying:

"Most of the Roam courses out there appear to be aimed at blog writers or youtubers. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it makes your course even more special for what it is: a Roam course for researchers and those exploring academia. I love the care and attention you give towards citations and how your notes are clearly differentiated between copied-from-the-book material, Quotes, Comments, etc. Not only can I learn more about Roam, but I can learn more about the fundamentals of research and serious (journal) writing as it applies to Roam and Roam workflows. For example, I’ve always been concerned about committing accidental plagiarism in the future because I fossilized bad note-taking and note-making practices in Roam due to ignorance and over-enthusiasm. Zettels are fascinating, but it’d be so easy to accidentally steal something if you developed a sloppy workflow in Roam."

- Stephanie

"Wow, I was blown away by your course! The reason I like this course so much is that you show great examples and explain in detail what you are doing and why. Your system covers everything - I think this could be incredible for the academic Roam community!"

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm not in academia. Is this course still right for me?
Depends! If it's important for your work where your information originates, if you need to trace that information to its original source, this course is definitely for you. If you want to have a start-to-finish workflow that covers reading, thinking, writing and publishing with Roam at its core, this course is absolutely for you too. If you just want to get started with Roam and explore it yourself, there's tons of free material out there! This course and I will be here when you're ready to take the next step and level up.
I'm not in academia. Can I still be part of the Research Group Community?
Absolutely. You'll be matched to others who are also not in academia but curious to use Roam for their research or learning process. It would be awesome to have you in the community!
Do I need to know how to use Roam to take this course?
Not at all! I'm going to take you by the hand and show you Roams fundamental features, helping you go from zero knowledge to having a solid foundation without frustration and confusion.
Why should I take this course instead of figuring Roam out myself?
For new users, Roam can be incredibly confusing - the onboarding is not very intuitive and it's hard to figure out what's possible by yourself.
What if I'm not happy with the course?
If you are unhappy with the course for any reason, I have a 30-day money back guarantee.
I'm using a different tool than Roam, like loqseq.com or Obsidian. Can I still take this course?
Absolutely! Some of the lessons won't apply, naturally, but if you're interested in a solid workflow for academic note-taking and writing, you'll still get a ton of value from this course.
I've taken other courses on using Roam, should I take this course too?
Possibly! This course focuses on the use of Roam in academia or research-adjacent fields. If it's important for your work to trace the origin of ideas or claims, critically evaluate what you read or you want a start-to-finish workflow for reading, thinking, writing and publishing with Roam at its core, you should definitely take this course.
How much time will this take?
The pace is up to you! You can speed-run through the whole course material at 2x speed in a couple of hours, but I would encourage you to take the time to actually implement the lessons and make them fit your needs. If you join for the workshops, you'll also get two 1-hour Zoom workshops with Q&A at the end that you can attend or watch the recordings if you decide to skip.
I already have notes in a different app, like Evernote, Notion or Bear. Should I take this course?
Absolutely. Before discovering Roam, I spent 8 years hacking my own Zettelkasten-like systems using different apps and collected thousands of quotes and notes. I even wrote a program that _printed_ these notes on cards in an effort to build a real-world Zettelkasten. As you can imagine given that I'm now teaching this course, switching to Roam was well worth it for me and I think it will be for you as well.

Comes with my no-questions asked, 30-day money back guarantee

If you don't LOVE this course, I want you to email me and ask for your money back. And you'll get it, 100%, and here's why.

I invite you to try these techniques and approaches and work one paper into your Roam database. Work through 10 papers. Work through 20. All I ask is that you watch what happens when you do. I'm confident you'll be impressed.

I worked on this system throughout my PhD, and built a prototype of my process long before Roam Research was available. I've tested it thoroughly, and there's nothing like this out there for building an academic process with Roam as its backbone.

This course isn't just about note-taking or a mere tutorial of Roam's features (although it does cover both). It's about building a process for academic research from start to finish, with systems that mesh like well tuned gears in a machine. And more than that, it's about dissecting the academic process, laying out its parts, and by doing so enabling you to re-assemble it so that it fits your needs and enables you to do your best research yet. And if I can do that...help make your writing easier...your understanding deeper...find new connections in your research...I consider that a job well done.

So, here's my simple offer: If you don't LOVE this course, I insist that you get 100% of your money back. It's simple: Join the course and see for yourself.

And if I can do that...help make your writing easier...your understanding deeper...find new connections in your research...I consider that a job well done.

So, here's my simple offer: If you don't LOVE this course, I insist that you get 100% of your money back. It's simple: Join the course and see for yourself.
