Andrew Oswald’s Advice to Young Researchers

Keith Arnaud recently posted the following in the astronomer’s Facebook group (thanks Keith!): Andrew Oswald’s list of “Things I would have found it useful to have been told when I was a young researcher”. Although Oswald is an economist, there are gems in here for many fields!

Added bonus: after the advice parts are examples of titles and abstracts from influential (read: well-cited) work done at his institution, as examples of the importance of a clear title and abstract for drawing people to your results.

Here is the PDF of Oswald’s advice; his main website can be found here.
