SEPT 6Introductory Meeting You should download MIKTEX from here

Here you can see a comparison chart of TEX editors:
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_TeX_editors

As you download MIKTEX you will automatically download TexWorks but feel free to use other TEX editors of your choice

There is  a  short guide to TEXWorks available throug h the program's HELP

There are many online documents that will help you learn Latex at your own pace (by trial and error like we all did!) and this manual 
by Professor Doob
is one very  good example

For those of you who like traditional books some of the very best are:

The true LaTeX bible is LaTeX: A Documentation Preparation System, written by Leslie Lamport, the author of LaTeX.  There have also been three companion volumes written by members of the LaTeX Documentation Project.

LaTeX : A Documentation Preparation System
Leslie Lamport

The LaTeX Companion
Michel Goossens, Frank Mittelbach, Alexander Samarin

The LaTeX Graphics Companion
Michel Goossens, Frank Mittelbach, Sebastian Rahtz

The LaTeX Web Companion
Michel Goossens, Sebastian Rahtz

A more complete book that  goes well beyond what you will likely need in the near future is
the one by Donald Knuth (who is the original author of TeX)

The TeXbook
Donald E. Knuth

SEPT 20 ECON6009 class will be changed for the lecture at 12:00 in the Bruneau Centre.

Note that it starts 30 minutes earlier than our usual meeting time

This is very important information that you will require for your MA Essays and further research work in Canada

It relates to the certificate that you will be asked to obtain in exchange for 5% of your grade for ECON 6009

You are encouraged to take careful notes during Dr. Adams' lecture
Research Ethics for Graduate Students: Background, Navigating the Ethics Process and Tips for Success

Dr. Russell Adams, PhD.
Professor of Psychology and Pediatrics
Faculties of Science and Medicine

Chair, Interdisciplinary Committee on
Ethics in Human Research

Monday, September 25th
12:00 – 1:30 p.m.
Room IIC 2014,
Bruneau Centre
You can download this little simple template of an article I prepared for you

These are two examples of the many guides you can find online to help you learn LATEX:

Oetiker et al 2002

and this is good too:

Doob 2002

There are a lot of them available. Just some of the ones you can find on the CTAN website are here


This is a great tool to avoid having to remember how to insert mathematical, Greek, and other special characters in latex (learn how to type my name! ;))

And more generally you might want to use something like this online math editor if you use a basic tex editor for your main typesetting

This is a link to a very good paper by Gary King on strategies for writing a paper and also about replication of previous works. He is s political scientist but his advice can be very useful to economists too
