Make a plan of your search

You can start planning your search thinking about the topic, the research question and the concepts or keywords that best identify them. Bear in mind:

  • which is the focus of the research question (specific analysis: depth / time available)
  • how can you relate and organize concepts (you may use tools such as mind maps for this purpose)
