Doing research and not getting lost in the nitty gritty details or becoming a master procrastinator can be hard sometimes. A research diary or journal, which helps you documenting your progress, feelings and learnings, can have a big impact on your research success.
After reading a lot about journaling during a PhD I went about searching for a clean and simple latex template that would help me to get started. However, I only found either classic lab reports or overly complicated solutions.
Thus, I set up my own document that provides a basic structure for doing daily journaling and also assists with reviewing one's progress on a weekly basis.
This template is as easy as it gets. This is the whole purpose of this template - to facilitate your setup of your own research diary!
