Useful links for beginning scholars

Back in April, I mentioned that the Journal of Econ Ed had several articles providing advice for those who submit papers to the JEE. Two other recent publications may also be useful, particularly for grad students and those at the beginning of their academic careers:
  • In The Art and Science of Scholarly Publishing, the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, Maureen Pirog, provides some great do’s and don’ts for getting published in peer-reviewed outlets. She also summarized her main points for Inside Higher Ed.
  • The National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance (NCEE) has a wonderful guide for academics about how to write for non-academics, called Going Public: Writing about research in everyday language. Although the focus is on education research, Mark Dynarski and Ellen Kisker’s advice applies to anyone doing policy-relevant research.
And of course, younger scholars should not miss the Primer for New Teachers of Economics in the Southern Economic Journal (an ungated version is available on my website).
