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 preparing a course on version control for PhD students.

To answer this question, the Library surveyed a group of researchers at the Graduate school PE&RC. In the survey they asked the researchers what issues they encountered in their day-to-day work. Based on their responses the Library identified five main problem areas for researchers. We discuss these areas with examples from the survey in our new blogpost.

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