ALFARO LOPEZ, Héctor Guillermo. Reading as a scientific knowledge and comprehension process. Investig. bibl [online]. 2010, vol.24, n.50, pp.35-47. ISSN 0187-358X.
Based on a text on Einstein's theory of relativity, the difference between reading science and doing science is outlined. The complexity of the reading process of scientific literature is also explained through its comprehension, which passes through three phases (reading conceptions): linguistic, psycholinguistic and socio-cultural, which helps to forge a scientific and cultural background. Similarly, the building of scientific knowledge assimilated though reading the concepts of reader appropriation and the subjectification of knowledge is mentioned all of which results in a personal view in the world of the reader, markedly scientific.
