|  When have I searched enough?  | That depends on how "green" you are in your field of study. The bottom line is: You can be sure you missed at least one paper that is highly relevant to your work. Ergo: Keep looking until the last minute. Just don't miss the deadline.  | |  When have I searched enough?  | That depends on how "green" you are in your field of study.

| Cited work: Is there a maximum?  | No. Most journals and conferences put no limitations on the number of references one can have in a paper. \\ If the paper calls for a lot of references then you should try to include them all. \\ Using the rule of proportions: It is strange to see more than 30% of the words in a paper devoted to references (typically it will be between 5% and 10%).  | | Cited work: Is there a maximum?  | No. Most journals and conferences put no limitations on the number of references one can have in a paper. \\ If the paper calls for a lot of references then you should try to include them all. \\ Using the rule of proportions: It is strange to see more than 30% of the words in a paper devoted to references (typically it will be between 5% and 10%).  |
