Short courses

Daniel S. Hamermesh (University of Texas at Austin)

The course will discuss the process of publishing in economics, the roles of peer review and editorial discretion, and the nature of what is published. It will examine the reward structure - what "counts" in getting ahead - and will stress the unusual nature of the profession compared to the natural sciences and to other social sciences. It will examine the determinants of success - monetary and nonmonetary - and will consider gender issues in each of these. Much of the focus will be on providing advice to junior scholars on how to navigate the economics profession.
