One thought on “Simple workflow hack: file naming conventions”

  1. That is excellent advice re: consistency. I tend to find myself searching for the “magic bullet” of organization, and end up switching systems far too often for any to be useful. Like writing advice, I think organization boils down to “JUST DO IT (and stick with it).” I follow a similar convention for photos/ audio/ video and academic articles, but where I find myself descending into chaos is with all of the various “gray literature” that applies to my research– the endless industry, UN, World Bank, NGO, and pseudo-academic publications that may or may not have an actual author, may or may not list a publication date, and definitely aren’t peer reviewed. I’m just not sure how to treat them, and have an even harder time staying consistent.
