I’ve got two short peer-reviewed pieces out today, neither of which really constitutes research, but are more commentary on a couple of issues related to research.
The first is a blogpost as part of Nature Human Behaviour’s ‘Is it publish or perish?’ series. My contribution focuses on political science/international relations and the UK academic job market. I also discuss broader concerns about mental health among graduate students and the negative implications of further increasing demands on them.
The second is a short article on problems with aggregated FDI data in World Economics Journal, published by World Economics, an economic-data consultancy/services provider. I discuss issues with applying definitions of FDI to data and problems with aggregated data, arguing that disaggregated analyses are more useful for policymakers.
