Organize your files

File version control

Keeping track of versions of documents and datasets is critical. Strategies include:

  • Directory structure naming conventions
    • Directory top-level folder should include the project title, unique identifier, and date.
    • The substructure should have a clear and documented naming convention, such as numbering or naming the experiment runs, dataset versions, and/or researchers.
  • File naming conventions
