Looking back at 2021-2022 and plans for 2023

Every end of year I write about what happened during the yearly cycle and what’s to come.

This year was very special and impactful for me. I learned a lot about myself, about what I do and why. Here are the highlights.

Highlights of 2022 and 2021


R Packages

Package yfR is the new iteration of BatchGetSymbols, with several new features and improvements. I had a very good experience submitting it for publication in ropensci. Both reviewers had great ideas that were implemented.

Checking previous plans

At the end of 2020, my plans for 2021 and 2021 were:

Publish new R/ggplot2 book (Visualização de Dados com R)
Done! :)
Publish third edition of Análise de Dados Financeiros e Econômicos com o R
Also done! :)
Publish board papers
Done! See it here.
Publish paper about academic inbreeding
Done! The paper is available at JOI

Plans for 2023

Publish revision of Analyzing Financial and Economic Data with R
I’m currently working on it. I’m implementing major changes in the background, on how the book is written and compiled. On a side note, it is great to have time to think about compiling books using Rmarkdown, and organizing it in a common framework. This will make it easier to update ALL books over time.
Publish revision of Análise de Dados Financeiros e Econômicos com o R
Same as previous revision. Almost everything improved in the english version will also be done here.
Write and publish paper about research schollarships
This is is WIP (work in progress). I have no idea how it will turn out, but the main guideline is investigating the effects (or causes) of research schollarships (Bolsas de Produtividade) in Brazil. Final version and publication is likelly to happen in 2024.
