I maintain an
org file to organize my literature survey. The headline structure reflects the hierarchy of topics in my research area. Within each topic, there is a list of research articles. A
TODO sequence helps me recall how deeply I have studied each article.
The problem is that, to use the
TODO sequence, I need to have a headline for each article. During the export to
latex, this results in a section created for each article, whereas I want to have a numbered list of articles within each topic. Setting
org-export-headline-levels does not solve the problem, since topics can be nested a various levels.
Thus, it seems that I am looking to somehow associate
TODO sequence with items rather than headlines. Is this possible? If not, is there an idiomatic solution to my problem?
