Mariners Album fully supported!

Very excited to see this project fully supported and then some!  Great time working with these guys at The Foundry–can’t wait for the release!

Live: AOM NDSC 2015 Website

As 2015 Academy of Management New Doctoral Student Consortium PDW co-chair (with LER’s very own Brandon Grant) and web chair, I’m excited to announce the 2015 refresh of the NDSC website is complete.  I’ve simplified the content and cleaned things up a bit… be looking for registration details and schedule in...

Stop missing data!

Missing data is not ideal, but is a reality with most research.  This is especially true of social science research where data often comes from subjects who are not forced to complete a survey or question they do not want to.

Using Zotero with LaTeX (and, naturally, BibTex)

If you don’t yet know, Zotero is a fantastic choice for reference management.  If you manage references you should use it.  It does everything at least as well as the competition and does one thing the competition does not–it clips not only citations, but also full text PDFs from all major...

Calculus Refresh?

For stat students (or anyone) wanting a fast refresh on calculus with a few different learning options, allow me to share my suggestions. 1.  20 minutes.  And who knew learning Calculus could be this entertaining?  It’s worth it for the sound effects alone. 2.  I like P. Lutus, he’s an interesting fellow and...
