This is long overdue post and I’m sorry for the delay. I have wanted to make this screen-cast long ago but never had the time and right environment to do it. It was not in perfect environment still as you can hear some background noise in this video. Please bear with me for my first time doing this.
Since I have found Mendeley, I have wanted to show you how I organize my articles collection online. So far so good, I’m still a happy user of Mendeley and I hope to continue use it even after I finish my dissertation.
I have been religiously making notes while reading the articles in Mendeley Desktop and later transferred those notes to what I called a synthesis matrix, so I have better idea which author is saying what idea. I haven’t synthesize every article yet as I keep finding new related article here and there. And since I have different categories that I want to explore, it probably takes me more time to go through as much as possible.
Anyway, I’m just glad I found Mendeley to help organizing all the articles, or else it would take me years to get them organized and start writing. Hehe! Hope this tool helps whoever in need. Oh, and if you have better way to do this, do share. Thanks!
