Also, don't forget to submit your replication paper topics to Canvas by Wednesday at 6pm. You should also begin to try to get the data for the paper you're planning to replicate, as Gary discussed at the beginning of lecture today.
The readings for this week come from UPM. Now that Gary has gone through theories of inference, you should reread chapter 2. Also, read chapter 2 so that you can familiarize yourself with the likelihood framework.
There's no lecture next week (Monday Feb. 17). But we will be having section on Feb 12 and 19.
The new (and final) study groups will be posted in the next couple days. Pay attention to Canvas for this.
Problem set 3 will be posted on Wednesday and will be due next week.
The reading assignment for this week is Gary's article "Publication, Publication." As you read it, be sure to note his suggestions for what makes a good replication paper. In a couple weeks (Feb. 26th) you and your coauthor will be required to submit a copy of the article you plan to replicate, as well as brief description of why you chose that article. You're also required to have one of your classmates sign off on your article choice after checking that your article meets all the criteria listed in Publication, Read more about Week 2 reading assignments
