I’m at the Joint Meetings in DC this week, so rather a long post, I thought I would ask a question: Which research papers (preferably, but not necessarily, in topology) do you think of as examples/models of well written papers? I’ve always thought that Scharlemann and Thompson’s paper Thin position for 3-manifolds is both well paced and clearly written, to the extent that each step in their reasoning seems almost trivial. But I’m obviously biased. What papers do you wish that others would use as models when they write?

Well written topology papers?
