4. Organising your information
Now that you have collected information, ask yourself:
Have you got enough information for your purpose?
Do you need to use all of this information?
Sort out the bits that are relevant and answer your research question. Get rid of repetitive info.
How can you best combine information from different sources?
Start to create your own opinions on the topic.
Are you on track? Review and adjust your focus.
