Coolest folder naming system ever!!!

Had to share this brilliant folder naming system with you….credit to the PhDer who came up with it but has remained anonymous…

Pretty much name things as per the phase of the event.

01_Research Plan

02_Research Proposal

03_ Ethics



06_ Results


08_For exam

Or For a literature review





Your sub folders within each folder would be related to each phase, making it easier to locate everything.

It’s a good idea to put a README set of instructions that explains your folder naming logic too (incase you get amnesia).

Plus, my 2 favourite must have folders / subfolders: A “Reference” folder where you save any resources / references / info.

Sharing is Caring 🙂 Feel free to let us know if you have an awesome system going too.

Best wishes!!
