Lab Manuals

Our lab takes pride in demystifying the research process for its affiliates, from start to finish. To that end, we are producing a series of manuals that speak to recurring features in any research career: theory-building, writing, managing failure, and other key topics. Whether you are an affiliate or not, you are welcome to download these for your own use. Too many political scientists already hoard critical professional information. We don’t want to contribute further to that trend. Please be on the lookout for additional lab manuals later this summer. We will continue to revise each of them periodically.

Lab Manual (1): Establishing and Maintaining a Writing Routine

Lab Manual (2): Building Theoretical Frameworks

Lab Manual (3): Managing Failure as a Professional Researcher
