Start by reading the titles. The title will sum up an article's topic.
About one-third of the titles in a list that look relevant will actually be relevant.
The next step is to read the abstracts of the promising articles.
Don't just search to meet the minimum expectations of the assignment but look for the most relevant or useful sources.
A good rule of thumb is to triple the number of sources required for the assignment. For example, if you need 10 articles, you should evaluate at least 30 articles.
