    I saw the recommended readings at the top of this page as well as the nice summaries on different ceph fossils.

    However, I was wondering if anyone could give me recommendations on scientific papers to read. This is for part of an independent study course - I'm reading about different aspects of cephs and want to spend a little time on fossils (but only like a week or two so please, no books unless it's a specific chapter). So if there are a few papers you think are seminal and a few papers you think are particularly interesting and recent, I would appreciate it.

    I can't help much there but the Octopus Den forum has a Member's Publication thread that you might want to browse. @Architeuthoceras specializes in fossiles so all of his papers will be relevant.
    @Taollan shows one from 2013 that may interest you
    @Wolfgang has a book listed that you may want to acquire even though books are not on the agenda

    I think most of the other works are about living animals or taxonomy but you can scan the thread for anything I may have missed.

    I can't think of any papers that would be "general" an/or "summary" in nature. The articles in this thread are probably the latest, and any of them are worth reading, and show the latest thinking on different fossil forms.
