    I keep them! Organization is key, but if I stay organized, I find that old research comes in handy quite often.

    I end up tossing most of them, but anything that I think might be useful later I include in my ongoing "worthless-knowledge-opedia"

    I always keep them. Sometimes I feel like re-reading them and revising my hub.  That is a great question!

    Hmm I have no research notes left as all my research (anything that is useful) goes into the hub. So, basically there's nothing for me to store big_smile

    But, of course everyone has their own way of things and I've seen the other answers and it's interesting to know. Thanks for the question.

    After I write the article I generally don't keep my research notes unless it's something that is of extra interest to me or something that I think I will use again in the future.

    I usually save them for a day and then delete them from my documents.

    I keep anything useful and throw the rest. I might want to write another article on the same or a similar topic or rewrite my hub. I write my hubs in word first and keep anything useful written at the bottom of my final article text.

    I keep all of my notes. You never know when the information will come in handy! Besides, I often refer to the research material again while working on other projects. Depending on the length and size of the project, I either file the notes in manila folders or 3-ring binders.

    I get rid of them so there's no clutter laying around.  I have a bad habit of just scrawling on a pad of paper.  If I were to ever go back to my notes I don't think they would make any sense!
