This template gives you a general outline for any research or freelance project. it even includes pages for your references and notes from meetings with your supervisor or manager. If you add all your references to the designated database, you can easily populate them on any other pages where they're needed.
The ability to have all parts drafted in separate pages to be easily copied over to more formal research writing platforms such as LaTeX is crucial. Furthermore, math equations work well and references can be easily tracked and stored in this format.
