  • Try to automate all graphs/figures that you create. I prefer Matplotlib; it can output high-quality PDF graphs that can directly be included in latex files.
  • If you really cannot automate the figure, then I recommend Inkscape for high quality vector graphics (which also export to PDF).
  • Use git for version control of your latex documents but also of your code
  • Are you training deep networks? Unfortunately, significant time goes to hyper parameter tuning. Please be prepared to follow A Recipe for Training Neural Networks
  • Excellent advise on How to write the Related Work section of a scientific article.
