Organize Your Research

Organize Your Research

Use your bedroom floor to make piles of all the papers, dividing them into different segments or chapters. 

Some of them will overlap into multiple segments and that can also be taken care of. After the segmentation, kindly assign a number to each paper.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Create a topic of your research assignment along with the subtopics labeled as A, B, C, D etc. Each topic can now be a different pile, separated with the help of sticky notes.

Now sort all your papers according to the piles, and when they are complete, start to label each piece of research with a letter and a number. So Your papers would be labeled like A1, A2, B1, B3 and so on.

Place your piles into separate folders labeled like the subtopics, stapling the sticky notes on the outside of it’s matching folder.

Now you can start writing your paper as you have chronological, topic-wise segregation of all your notes. While writing the paper, do check if the notes are appropriate or can also fit somewhere else. Notes can later be replaced by citations.

The Cornell Method

Divide your paper into three sections: a 2.5” margin to the left, a 2” summary section on the bottom, and a main 6” section.

  • The main 6" section is used for note-taking during class.
  • The 2.5" margin to the left is the cues section. Use this space to write down ideas you'll need to remember. Add a prompt for each. Include vocabulary words and study questions here.
  • The 2" summary section at the bottom is where you'll highlight the main points.

The advantages of this method are notes that are neatly organized and summarized.

8. Keep Moving

If you’re not making progress or don’t know what to do next, do the next thing you can think, or move on to the next one. Don’t let yourself freeze up or you risk procrastination and futility. 

To generate great ideas, look around for clues. 

  • You can deduce the reasons why something is successful by asking the relevant people why they like it.
  • If it is an unexpectedly successful blog post, read the comments. 
  • Observe. People often are not able to accurately articulate why they like something.
