Read, read and read some more

There’s no shortcut to conducting a thorough systematic literature review. It’s not the actually find it quite It. The thing I find most challenging is knowing when to continue reading because the text is of interest to me or because it is of interest to study and myself.So, as I’ve been conducting the literature review, I have summarised the data on collection to aid with its synthesis in the future. Reviewing the data as it is collected keeps me actively engaged with the content and also acts as a reminder to read and re-read the research question. By reading the question numerous times, my focus remains on the topic which is very important . It is very easy to go off on a research tangent, pursuing articles that are of personal interest without realising their worth (or often lack of worth) to the task at hand.
