A simple trick I’ve found when conducting initial research for a specific topic is to include a running list of keywords and phrases somewhere visually distinctive in my outline.

As I mine data I note industry- or subject specific words that offer impact or dynamism to the topic. For example, I was doing research on undergrad research programs, so I started a short list of keywords in my outline that I culled from a variety of resources I had just plowed through: collegial, interdisciplinary, pedagogy, plus a slew of others that might give my writing a unique flexibility and more granular meaning in the realm of the topic I was preparing to write on.
