This is the organization of each student’s folder with Nikola and/or Julien. You can use Dropbox or Google Drive, but not both (to avoid duplication). Please let us know which one you want to use, then please organize folders as follows:

Folder

Description

admin

biblio

not ALL your biblio, but some interesting stuff that we exchange temporarily

conferences

subfolder prefix is the date of the event, e.g. 20150530_ISMRM/

fellowships

subfolder prefix is the date of the deadline, e.g. 20150314_FRQS/

manuscripts

subfolder name is year of first submission + journal, e.g. 2015_neuroimage/

• inside folder, organize by revisions, e.g. r0/, r1/, etc. Then:

• have a folder figures/
• name your manuscript like: manuscript_templateSpinalCord_r0_v00.docx. Once you get feedback from someone, integrates comment and create file: manuscript_templateSpinalCord_r0_v01.docx

misc

Anything you want

reports

Include progress reports (format: Google Slides, pptx, keynote or pdf). Google Slides are preferred because comments can easily be added. Prefix name should start with YYYYMMDD_. Example: 20170515_report.pptx

results

Snapshots/results of your experiments. Prefix should start with YYYYMMDD. Example: 20150120_dmri_nogse/

Note

**Note for Intern Students: **You will only need to create the admin, biblio, and reports folders.

GENERAL RULES:

• NEVER USE SPACE OR ACCENTS IN FILE NAMES! (Unix-unfriendly).

• Date format should always be YYYYMMDD (or YYYY-MM-DD). See this: https://xkcd.com/1179/

Thank you

P.S. For projects involving multiple students, a “project” folder is created under Google Drive/NeuroPoly/Projects.
