Evening Discussion: Vojtěch Bartoš “Attention Discrimination: From a Research Idea to a Publication in the American Economic Review”

Join us for an informal evening discussion with our PhD student Vojtěch Bartoš where he will share with you his experiences of co-authoring an article for one of the top five economics journals. 

“Using an example of our paper entitled “Attention Discrimination: Theory and field experiments with monitoring information acquisition” (a joint work with Michal Bauer, Julie Chytilová, and Filip Matějka), I will guide you through the process of academic research in economics from its inception through to publication in a top economics journal. During the talk, I will present the main ideas of the paper, but the main focus will be behind the scenes: how to look for a research question, when to talk to your advisor, why collaborate with others, how to write a paper in a structured way and why economic theory is helpful in this respect, and finally how the publication process works.”
