Writing it all up

How do I write this all up?  First, you'll need to take notes as you work through your project.

Second, you'll need to state:

  1. where you looked (i.e. searched)
  2. what terms you used when looking & searching
  3. when you looked
  4. what you found.

Make sure you capture the above information as you go!

Here's an example of a write up:  (Look at the section labeled Methods: Study Identification)  http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6947/10/60#sec2
