RMarkdown workshop: The workshop will introduce you how to create nicely formatted report/article based on your R code. RMarkdown seamlessly combines code and output and makes it easy to get your results out of R directly into your paper. We will cover basic text formatting and setting up your document and managing citations. If you use LaTeX we will also cover how to extract summary tables, crosstabs and regression tables to use in your LaTeX document.

LateX workshop: The workshop will prepare you to write and produce beautifully formatted documents, written in LaTeX. We will cover the basics: what is LaTeX? Should I use it? Basic text formatting and setting up your document and managing citations. We will also go through the CEU dissertation template and how to use it to get a nicely formatted output of your research. No prior knowledge assumed, nor software requirements. If you wish to do some prepping, create an account at Overleaf here:
