One key to being an efficient researcher, especially when you're doing interdisciplinary research, is to know how to quickly scan articles:

  • read the abstract – what's the article about?
  • make note of the journal – what is the journal's title? what subjects or topics does it cover?
  • look at the publication date – is the article current?
  • determine where the authors are from – what are their disciplines or institutional affiliations? 
  • read the methodology section – what research methods did the authors use?
