Hey, i am about to write my master thesis soon and i am looking for a good tool to manage thoughts and information i gather from literature.
I already have a general idea what the thesis will be about and wrote a proposal, which also contained a very rough outline. So basically it’s time for me to dive into literature deeper now, develop ideas, take notes and finally write the thing down.
My current stack includes:
- LaTeX + TeXstudio for writing
- Gitea + Drone CI for version management
- Zotero for literature management
I use Zotfile to extract notes out of the PDFs, but i am looking for a note taking app, i can expand my thoughts on and write some more stuff etc.
As i was looking for a tool / methodology, i came across alot of people that use Obsidian + Zettelkasten as their knowledge base. I wonder if this could be a suitable combination for me, or if it’s too late to start using Obsidian, when you already have a rough outline in mind.
Do you use Obsidian to build knowledge over the course of months and years to basically have it before - say a thesis - starts, or do some people started using Obsidian to manage notes specifically for a thesis.
The alternative for me would be to just dump my notes into Notion.
Maybe someone else was in a similar situation or can just give me their opinion on this, thanks alot
