Early blog-reader gets the worm

I follow several – actually, closer to twenty – academic journals daily, and get their tables of contents to my mailbox as soon as they are published. So far I’ve been fairly confident that if anything interesting is published, I will notice it – until yesterday, via Bloglines, I read an article on EurekAlert that described a particularly interesting modelling solution to a problem I’m working on at. The results were “published in the current issue of PNAS”, and of course I went on to search for the original paper – without success.
Today, I look again, and indeed the work is published – but only in ‘advance publications’ section, and even there it was not available before yesterday *evening*.
Now, all I need to do is to read & understand this complicated theoretical thing before our modelling meeting in one hour…
