Secret academic business

Much of the routine work that is associated with postgraduate study is largely invisible to the outsider or newcomer. How do experienced academics read, write, take notes? What do experienced academics notice? Why? How do they manage the fire hose of information coming at them? How do they search and find stuff? How do they assemble the various bits and pieces they have collected around a topic on which they are working?

In this Wiki, we hope we can help you go someway to exploring, making more visible the various academic habits of thinking, reading, writing, taking notes and working with the digital.
