Example: (resilience OR grit) critique
Consider keeping a research journal.
Include: Databases and sources, effective key words/descriptors and combinations, key journals and authors and publishers, ideas for follow up.
Note: Copyright, license terms or permissions contacts for information that you may want to cite or use substantially in papers or presentations. Take particular note of scholars and colleagues who are facilitating your work through Open Access and Open Education Practices. Consider how this kind of "generous thinking" might inform your own scholarly and professional practice.
Save and name files consistently.
Make periodic backups.
e.g.: from local drive to cloud, or cloud to local.
Use a citation management tool.
Consider: Features or functionality that you will need.
