June Resource - The easy way to tackle that lingering literature review:
Summer is my favorite time for catching up on published literature. One summer, I committed to reading 1 paper a day for 3 months, which eventually turned intoa published literature reviewthat has since been cited almost 1500 times! The key was the process. I scanned for relevance before diving in and made sure to take detailed, organized notes on each paper as I went.
This articledetails the process I used. (Hint: it's not reading the whole thing start to finish!)
This is a Google Docs template I usedto take notes for each paper. The questions I used are the key; you can use whatever software you like. Zotero is great for managing references, too.
Pro tip: If you can find a tablet or foldable laptop to read and annotate the papers outside in a comfy spot, it'll be much easier to keep up your pace!
