This guide gives tips on how to do (quantitative) research and on how to write it up. These insights seem to hold throughout all (social) sciences. I illustrate them using examples from finance and economics. My main goal is to save budding researchers time by preventing them from doing bad research and helping them to attract attention to their research by writing it better. My insights are based on learning from the best and from many of my own time-wasting mistakes over the last twenty-five years.
