Publication of "Introduction to Econometrics with R"
The book Introduction to Econometrics with R by Christoph Hanck, Martin Arnold, Alexander Gerber and Martin Schmelzer has been published in the bookdown archive. The book is part of the project Reproducible Research in der ökonometrischen Grundausbildung (Reproducible Research in basic econometric education), funded by the Stifterverband and the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia as part of the fellowships for innovations in digital higher education. Introduction to Econometrics with R is an interactive online companion to the textbook by Stock & Watson (2015) and focuses on empirical applications using the statistical programming language R. The open-source project is based on the R package bookdown (Xie, 2018) and is fully reproducible. Thus it can be used by other teachers as a template for similar projects. The project recently won the Honorable Mention Prize in the first bookdown contest.
