The course introduces the use of LaTeX for producing academic documents, a widely used platform in the natural sciences which remains underused by social scientists. At the end of the course, students will be ready to produce a conference paper including well-formatted tables, figures, and equations. We will also cover how to extend this to produce longer documents, such as dissertations. Knowing the fundamentals taught in the course, students will be able to later extend their abilities in order to produce handouts and presentations using LaTeX.
