Faff’s (2015; 2021) “Pitching Research” framework (PRF) is built on a research planning tool that challenges (novice) researchers to productively communicate their prospective research ideas to academic field experts. The framework gives you a total communication budget of 1,000 words ± 20%, to be allocated across 11 items. The current paper focuses on the third listed item in the PRF, (C) Key Papers. Informed by an extensive personal research career together with insights gleaned from the latest relevant literature, I give practical guidance and tips on how to identify an effective set of key papers.
