I would like to write engaging summaries/discussions of research papers in my field for non-specialists. These summaries/discussions would be posted on my personal website. The original article, authors, and journal would be transparently and prominently cited.
The objectives are two-fold:
(1) To improve my communication skills, specifically the effective communication of complex ideas.
(2) To develop more traction for my own work in specific and my area of work in general [I am an early career researcher].
Is this an acceptable and encouraged practice? Specifically, are there any cautions I should take to avoid copyright violations or ruffling feathers?
