Notion Research Hub [2023 Template]

Research Hub

Storing and organizing your research in Notion can greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your research process. Notion's customizable and flexible platform provides you with a centralized location to store all of your research information, making it easy to access, sort and filter your findings.

With the Notion Research Hub template, you have access to a streamlined and organized database to store your research, along with the ability to create multiple views to sort and filter your findings based on your specific needs.

And in this short tutorial, we'll walk through what's included in the template and how best to go about using it.

Notion Research Hub Template: Quick Guide

  1. Utilize the Research Database to store your research items
  2. Use properties such as 'Status', 'Category', 'Media Type', 'Link' to organize and categorize your research
  3. Store notes about each research item in the database's individual page
  4. Sort items 'By Category', 'By Type', 'By Status' using individual database views
  5. Quickly filter and configure your research database using the 'New Research View' button to spawn a fresh linked database view on a new Notion page.

Step 1: Understanding the Research Database

The Notion Research Hub Template has a Research Database, which acts as a central repository for all your research items. You can use this database to store information about each research item you come across, such as its status, category, media type, and a link to its source.

Step 2: Properties In Your Research Database

To make it easier to categorize and sort your research items, the template comes with properties for Status, Category, Media Type, and Link. Simply click on each property column  and select from pre-existing options, or add your own properties and options to the database.

Step 3: Taking Notes in each Database Page

For each research item in your database, you can use its database page to store notes and any additional information. Simply click 'Open' on any research item you've added to the database, and a fresh Notion page will open in Side-peek view letting you quickly add more details while keeping an overview of your Hub.

Step 4: Sorting Research Items

The Notion Research Hub Template has individual database views for sorting items by Category, Type, and Status. This makes it easy to quickly find the research items you're looking for, based on the criteria that matter most to you.

Step 5: Creating a New Research View

The Notion Research Hub Template also has a "New Research View" button that allows you to quickly create a new linked database view of your research database. This is especially helpful when you want to filter your research items in a different way or when you need to set up a new Notion page for a new project.
