Thanks for the suggestions! I have a new question: how does one file these articles? (I am using mostly hard copies because it is easier to read and scribble on) I am thinking of grouping it in the topics (e.g. COVID-19 and school closure, and Maths education) and then alphabetically by author in the topics, and then by year? In old-fashioned lever arch files?

I group by subject and go for most referenced to least. If you’re not using a citation manager though, I suggest you start. It will make your reference section a breeze, and you won’t have to manually update all the references each time you edit. A lot of people use End Note, but I prefer Mendeley. It has a MS word plug in and is very straight forward. I, too, prefer to print and read on hard copies though!

I’ve been trying to use EndNote – it’s been an interesting time! Going to look at Mendeley now

Another vote for Mendeley here! Love being able to write notes on set highlights so I can look back on papers quickly.

Thanks Bees! I think I need to stop spending so much time on WB looking at pretty pictures – my supervisor is breathing fire again – she signed off as Dr Surname Surname in the latest email.
(I figured that when she signs off as Dr initial initial she is in a better mood than when when signs off as Dr surname surname – her surname has two parts – and this was also the case when she taught me in undergrad.)
I will come back for advice if I get stuck later eg with sorting out data etc!
