Handling research (Academic workflow 2)

Last time we did this, I showed you what my PLN looked like about a year ago. I advise you to read that first before you continue reading below. In today’s update I will lay out how I generally go about the processing of research. It’s a kind of habit I’ve been cultivating for a few years now, and it generally does pay off, but it did not come out of nowhere and I might have forgotten some of the sources that influenced me.
