Research Management for Social Sciences: Tools and Techniques
Researchers often work with materials and data in many different formats and file types, from .xlsx to .txt. Organizing these varied research materials can be a challenge, especially the need to keep track of multiple versions of the same file. This session will cover best practices for naming computer files and directories, followed by a short demonstration of GitHub for versioning, managing, and sharing files. By the end of the session, attendees will learn about tools and best practices for organizing and navigating your varied research materials.
This Bootcamp will be immediately followed by the Graduate Students Social in the Bradley Reading Room.
