- On the promise and perils of sharing work in progress  – nice discussion on the MonkeyCage blog, including references to Berk’s post  on the problems of working papers.
- Different interventions are needed to get kids to learn in school than the ones that work in getting more kids to attend  – that’s the message from a 3ie review of 75 education interventions according to a new blog post by Howard White.
- How to write a replication paper that journals will publish  – the political science replication blog has some advice.
- As new semesters start, it is a shame that many people these days seem to restrict access to their syllabi through university portals, making it hard to see what is getting taught. So kudos to: (undergraduate courses) Richard Akresh , Paul Cichello  (graduate courses) Aimee Chin , Debraj Ray , Dean Yang  and (Kennedy School course) Asim, Rohini and Lant  for putting their Fall 2013 development economics syllabi online.
Readers: would be great if you could add a link in the comments to any other publicly available Fall 2013 development economics syllabi in classes you are teaching or taking.
