Color-Coding

It is so important to take notes when review papers or read books. However, most of the efforts to grasp the information included in the works is invalid or inefficient. Highlight techniques such as color coding play an essential role in reading memories. Here, I log some tips to effectively color coding.

  1. Color-code after initial note-taking

  2. Choose the right tools

  3. Be consistent

  4. Limit your color palette

  5. Use color-coding judiciously

Personally, I use RED to note the easiest content, use GREEN to record something you should recall by 3 secs; and YELLOW to reflect the materials you just have one picture in you mind, BLUE to represent the knowledge never heard.

How to Write the Introduction [by David Evans]

全球发展中心高级研究员Evans博士分享的摘要写作经验,写的很棒,共享收藏之。原文标题为”How to Write the Introduction of Your Development Economics Paper“).

You win or lose your readers with the introduction of your economics paper. Your title and your abstract should convince people to read your introduction. Research shows that economics papers with more readable introductions get cited more. The introduction is your opportunity to lay out your research question, your empirical strategy, your findings, and why it matters. Succinctly.

Various economists have provided advice on how to write an introduction. Keith Head gives “The Introduction Formula”: (1) the hook: attract the reader’s interest, (2) the question: what your paper does, (3) antecedents: what work you build on, (4) value-added: how you add to the work you build on, and (5) roadmap of the paper.

Claudia Sahm provides related advice: (1) motivation, (2) research question, (3) main contribution, (4) method, (5) findings, (6) robustness check, and (7) roadmap of the paper.

How does this play out practically? I identified the most recent empirical microeconomic development papers from a range of top journals, including the American Economic Review (AER), the Quarterly Journal of Economics (QJE), American Economic Journal: Applied Economics (AEJ: Applied), and others. Then I outlined the introduction of each paper: What do the authors do in paragraph one? What about paragraph two?

Here’s what I learned.

R1

R语言躺在我的学习清单里,已经很久了。近期振兴创建了一个星球TidyFridy,是一个数据分析,软件应用的学习小组,借此正好开启一项“新”技能的学习。

R语言对我而言,既熟悉又陌生。熟悉的是我们在高级计量经济学所使用的软件就是R,而陌生感来自于自己上课时并没有认真学习,所记无多😂。所以,很多当时自认为被绕过去的人和事,总会在某一天倔强地再次出现在你的面前。

南邮图书馆与新经济学

图书馆不仅是大学地标,更是学校的灵魂。在我的想象中,图书馆有宏大的视野与广阔的宇宙,在科学素养之上,饱含人文精神。

批量修改英文引号

Mac os上word的快捷键操作远不如Windows系统便捷。

答辩之前

今天终于等到了论文的盲评意见。

论文外审在路上

你问我想要的是什么?

当然是快速通过啊!

选择

回国后,匆匆忙忙到处赶场,终于在8月底回到武汉开始撰写毕业论文。理想与现实的差距一度让我极其焦虑。好在没有耽误进程,在论文提交送审的当天顺利完成(初稿)。

写在你毕业的时候

起笔是一篇文章最难的阶段,无论是日常写作,还是学术论文,而结束则往往分布在反射弧的最末端。

某一个阶段

连续两个月的迭代与改进,第一篇关于环境的论文正式投出去。
