Writing reports using R-Markdown and iDiv’s Gitlab/Github
We will explore how to use R-Markdown to create a publication-ready report. I will show how to include graphics, either directly from analyses performed in R, or from external sources such as .jpg-pictures. I will demonstrate how to include mathematical equations, how to number tables, graphics and equations, how to add bibliographies, and everything else you need to write a full manuscript. Optional: I will show how to use iDiv’s Gitlab and/or Github as version control tools for your R-project in R-Studio.
Didactic aims/ competencies gained
You will be able to use R-Markdown, Bookdown and further R-packages to write publication-ready reports. Optional: You will learn the basics to use iDiv’s Gitlab and/or Github to have control of your R-project.
Live presentation of R-Markdown using R-Studio: The presentation can be interrupted at any time by the participants for questions.
Prior knowledge needed
You need basic knowledge of R and R-Studio. Please activate your iDiv Gitlab-account before the course. If you are not an iDiv employee or member, you can also use Github. You can also join the course without Gitlab or Github!
