I would like to know of a list of pedagogical/classic/nice papers that study stringy effects in the bulk. May be a sequence which a student follows to understand the stringy nature that is at play.

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This strikes me as too broad as is, but it could be modified a bit to fit under our recommendation policy I think. – David Z Dec 9 '13 at 9:00
In my expectation, a description of exclusively stringy effects in the bulk in the context of the AdS/CFT business should rather be quite specific (excitations). So the question does not look too broad to me. – Dilaton Jan 15 '14 at 11:44
If it is specific, then this is a reference request. But it's not as specific as most reference requests as it is not addressing a particular study, more of a class of studies. As a resource recommendation it seems too narrow. Not sure, bring this up on meta if you wish, @Dilaton. There is a fuzzy region between ref-req and resource-req that is not clear policywise. – Manishearth Jan 16 '14 at 9:59
