Beck Tench's Academic Workflow

June 28, 2019 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Last week teacher, PhD student, and researcher Beck Tench talked on Learn OmniFocus how she organizes her academic work with OmniFocus, DEVONthink, Tinderbox and many others.

On her own website she outlines her academic workflows even more in detail. She shares how she uses a variety of software products together for maximum productivity and how she works on improving her workflow every day:

I read digitally, mostly, but with a pen in hand. I use the Zettelkasten method for creating notes about my readings using a robust digital knowledge management tool. My solution for reference and search is unwieldy, but it’s sort of working. I’m actively working on establishing a distraction-free, non-linear writing environment that uses markdown and plays well with my reference management software.

If you’re working in academics or just any other field that involves reading, researching, and writing you should not miss her website:
