Literature search FOMO! How much is enough? When should you stop looking for more references?
I'm sure many of you will identify with this situation:
You're looking up sources to build relevant references for your research paper or for a literature review you are working on. Things begin really well, but soon you find yourself in a rabbit hole. Every paper/work you come across takes you on a new search and you can't help but look up the new source. How do you overcome this literature search FOMO? How do you know when to stop?😲
