Dear members of Statalist,
Using Stata has helped me realize an innate and compulsive need for attention to detail. When it comes to good research practices in general, I've learned good habits from my teachers and from this paper:

Schreier AA, Wilson K, Resnik D. Academic research record-keeping: best practices for individuals, group leaders, and institutions. Acad Med 2006;81(1):42-7.

However, when it comes to Stata in particular, I'm feeling that learning structured approaches from others would be useful. I'd appreciate any pointers toward good do-file hygeine, i.e. management practices to maximize good record keeping, with resulting least likelihood of overlooking important details.

Best wishes,
