Producing publication-ready documents in R Markdown

February 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0

Welcome back everyone to another year of exciting R-Ladies events!

For our first event of 2019 two of our organisers, Anna and Soroor, will be giving a workshop on Producing Publication-Ready Documents in R Markdown!

R Markdown with its simple syntax can be easily turned into a powerful tool to combine R analysis with formatted text, to produce publication-quality documents such as books, journal papers, homework reports, and theses. Come and join us in this meet up to find out more.

We will cover
– Formatting section headings, chapters, table of content, font size, line space and margins
– Referencing tables, figures, chapters, equations
– Citation styles, managing Bibliography records with bibTex
– Mathematical equations with Latex
– Inserting images, figures, and tables

Please bring your laptop laptop so you can try to write your own sample paper and get help if you get stuck!!

This event will be hosted by our wonderful sponsor Nous. Pizza and drinks will be provided for the evening.

Can’t wait to see you all there!
