My research guidelines

Other research guidelines


  • Figures.  Try to script all graphs/figures that you create. Yes: All. Your adviser may ask for a completely different version of a figure, and automating it prevents lots of manual re-doing. I prefer Matplotlib; it can output high-quality PDF figures and graphs that can directly be included in pdflatex.

  • Manual figures and posters.  If you really cannot automate the figure, and you really think you just need 1 version, then I recommend Inkscape for high quality vector graphics (which also export to PDF).

  • Version control.  Use git for version control of your latex documents but also of your code
