This chapter explores the ways in which a savvy researcher can take the essential elements of a fresh search, examine answers to some critical questions related to the issue(s) at hand, develop a strategy for approaching the research process that fits the unique problem, and implement that strategy in a cost- effective and efficient way. It culminates in recommendations for organizing the information gathered so that you may convey your findings in a clear, thoughtful, and useful manner. The chapter concludes with tips on how to know when to end your research.
