This is primarily a list of resources that I have personally found to be useful and believe can benefit others within academia, whether they are extremely experienced or just starting out. Storing all of the links in this one place makes it easier for me to access them and enables easy sharing with students and colleagues. Some aspects are specific to my discipline (sports biomechanics) but the majority is applicable to other areas. If you have any recommendations for additions to the list then please let me know. I will continue to update this as I discover more useful resources.

The list is compiled in an approximate chronological order of the scientific research process, to make it easier for new students to work through. Please use the contents below to skip to particular sections of interest.
