Whether your data is digital or held in a physical copy you
will sooner or later need to work out a way to organise it so
that you can find items quickly, efficiently, and usefully. In
this section we will look into creating a structure for a
folder system, deal with issues of version control, and
consider differences of working as an individual or as part of
a collaborative endeavour.
We shall begin by looking at physical materials. Read through
the handbook and think about how you will handle print outs,
photocopies, and physical objects that you might accumulate
during the research process.
