Not sure what the recommended structure is for Scrivener, but here's what I do:
- PART A
-- Chapter 1
--- Purpose of this scene
--- Other thoughts
-- Chapter 2
-- Chapter 3
-- Chapter 4
- PART B
-- Chapter 5
-- Chapter 6
-- Chapter 7
To read the draft in one go, I want to string together the chapters (manually if I have to - automatically, if I can). For obvious reasons, I don't want my research or trash to show up between chapters.

I do that for general stuff (like character sheets), but for anything scene-specific (research, brainstorming and other ramblings), my workflow would collapse if I couldn't attach it to the page or chapter it refers to.
Three Blind Lice wrote:Same goes for trash - discarded material goes to a file directly under the scene (how could I ever recycle anything if the context is lost?).

I suspect that most users of Scrivener would be similar. Brainstorming/random thoughts will often start out in the Draft Folder, but then get moved to Research. I also use the Scratchpad for this purpose.
One distinctly lo-fi way to keep the context of discarded material is to replicate your draft tree in the Research Folder, and then move material here to the relevant chapter/scene as it is discarded from the draft.
Or (as I think you're using the beta and I think it has them incorporated now), investigate the use of Bookmarks or Document links as a way of associating your documents with each other. Info on both in the manual. More info in the following blog posts:

...create just too much dead weight for my taste. My need to preserve old material always pops up locally - when I have to cut a larger portion of text, or a particular scene needs to be completely rewritten. Somehow, snapshots of the entire project are just not useful for my purposes.

...if the actual items in the binder could be symbolic links (so I could store the actual files in the research tree, but still maintain the current convenience of having everything related to a particular scene at my fingertips).
Three Blind Lice wrote:I understand that the inspector is probably very useful for folks who work at their home desks, but since I do a lot of work on my ultra-portable nine inch screen, I had to abandond the inspector altogether. Instead, I rely on anything I can access via the binder. It seems like bookmarks cannot be used as items in the binder either, so I am afraid they are not for me.
