In nearly every research project, your most important collaborator (you from 5 months ago) does not reply to emails. Fortunately, there are several strategies for handling these types of problems. In this seminar we will focus on best practices and tools for managing your data and improving your research efficiency. Using modular batch scripts, GitHub, markdown, etc. will make resubmitting your R&R a breeze, while also facilitating your collaborations with students advisors, and colleagues. These tips and tricks are portable across stat packages (e.g., Stata, R, SAS) and can be employed with either Windows or macOS.
This session is led by Research Scientist Jason Thomas.
