Abstract

Current paper reports the advantages of the application of GitHub and LaTeX for the MSc thesis writing. The existing code-based program implemented in GitHub portal provides a great tool for scientists and students for data sharing and notification of the co-workers, tutors and supervisors involved in research about actual updates. It enables to connect collaborators to share around current results, release datasets and updates and more. Using standard command-line interface GitHub allows registered users to push repositories on the website. The availability of both public and private repositories enables to share current data updates with target audience: e.g. unpublished research work only for co-authors or supervisors, or vice versa. Therefore, there is a need in academic centres and universities to strongly popularize and increase the use of GitHub for student works. The case study is given on the graduate study: an MSc work written and maintained using open source GitHub service at the University of Twente, Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (Netherlands). It reports my successful experience of writing MSc thesis based on the effective combination of LaTeX and GitHub.

Keywords: data sharing, education technologies, effective management, data organizing, research methodologies
