|Search systematically and keep track of your search terms; this will help you figure out which search strategies provide the best results.|
|Save and organize the articles and other sources you wish to set aside for further reading and give your files names that make sense for you, e.g. Smith_2015.pdf (Author last name_publication year.pdf).|
