Speaking of facts, files and folders : version control issues

Published on

What version control issues do researchers encounter and possibly struggle with? The Library asked this question in preparation for a course on version control for PhD students.

To answer this question, the Library carried out a survey amongst a group of researchers at the Graduate school PE&RC, in which they asked what issues they encountered in their day-to-day work. A lot of researchers responded to the survey. Their responses allowed the Library to identify five main areas that researchers struggled with. In a new blogpost in our Library blog about Open Science the five areas are listed with examples from the survey.

We invite you to read and to comment on the blogposts of the OpenScience blog.
