Political Scientists: do you know OLS, R and LaTeX?

Anyone who can't estimate and interpret a basic linear regression model in R should not be in the discipline.
Why? I use Stata, and have never even looked into IR. I learned how to estimate and interpret a basic linear regression model when you were still thinking of excuses to get out of gym class.

Ok Boomer, do you use word as well? Do you copy and paste in your tables? Your choice of software signals little awareness of principles of open science and reproducibility. You do get points for knowing OLS though.

I'm Gen X, not a Boomer. My Hindex is 32. What's yours?

That sounds like a lot of publications. Are you prepared to produce tables and scripts that reproduce the analysis for all of those papers?

For the last two dozen or so? Absolutely.
Are you prepared to publish something  anything? Or is the reason you got into this business to anonymously sh*tpoast and pretend like you're a champion of science because you can write up a Ramsey reset test in R and still can't come up with an original enough thought to get you better than an A in prosem?

In terms of why you should learn R, I can assure you that stata can not perform the regression models that avoid you having inefficient standard errors. Also, I don't have stata on my home computer. I think we should all be using open source languages that allow anyone to replicate results.

That’s solid. This is by far the most interning thing I’ve ever seen here.

I agree, stata can be reproducible. And I am more confident in it as well since it was my first language. Still think you need to make the switch to LaTeX. Word documents are not interactive.

since when stata is a "language"?

Well, that's interesting, but I'm good, thanks.
A word to the wise, in all sincerity: worry about the theory. Provide code, data, and all replication materials. Let the world worry about the rest of it. Discovery is not primarily about facilitating free replication opportunities for all.
Oh, and ask an economist about the impact of standard error inefficiency on findings. She'll tell you to run OLS on events data.
