The seminar "Industrial Organization and Digital Economy" deals with the understanding and writing of scientific papers in the field of economics.
On the basis of an empirical article in applied industrial economics or competition economics, students work on grasping the content of scientific texts and understanding their structure. By means of a specific article, general principles are elaborated and thus made visible to the students.
The main objective is for students to independently write a scientific text on an empirical project during the semester. The finished text should be well written and coherently structured. The main focus is not on empirical analysis, but on writing the text. Reflection, feedback (from the students and the course instructor) and revision of the text are central components of the course and should ensure the quality of the scientific text.
