The meeting will take around 30 mins, and the discussion will be about 1) the core message of the paper, 2) the qualitative evaluation of the paper’s contribution to the literature, and 3) the contents to be presented during the class. To schedule a meeting, please write an email to me. Research proposal (20%) – A short proposal (2-3 pages) that includes basic figures or tables that sharply highlight the research plan.
