I will be doing an Honours in Commerce next year at a GO8 university.
This is essentially a stepping stone into a pathway to academia (or sometimes a resume booster for getting into industry).
It will be my first time getting an exposure to reading and researching academic articles, and I was wondering if there was some sort of guide or standard to researching and reading academic papers, particularly in finance and economics.
In essence, I was hoping to find something of a similar nature to this guide on studying university level mathematics.
I feel this question may be received as vague, thus I will give an example:
suppose I am looking for research inspiration, for instance. Then, in searching it would (perhaps obviously, or perhaps I am entirely wrong) not be the best idea to read articles and thoroughly understand every single detail of each and every one of them, but rather, read articles and see where there are knowledge gaps and potential for future research.
- there is surely a methodology to roughly follow or guide or book out there which helps you become/build the skills to be a good/more efficient/effective researcher?
any help is appreciated.
