How To Increase The Visibility Of A Published Article?

For academics, the goal is not only to publish their name in print but to make an impact in society and scientific community.  For this purpose, published research has to be disseminated properly. Most journals do disseminate their published articles in many ways, but authors can boost dissemination of their research. Often, well-disseminated research leads to higher citations. Here, we

Steps in Vector Autoregressive (VAR) and Vector Error Correction (VEC) Models

Steps in Vector Autoregressive (VAR) and Vector Error Correction (VEC) Models Check co-integration using Johansen co-integration test If you find any co-integration equation, go for VEC model. However, VAR is fine too for simplicity. Estimation parameters do not differ drasticially. Decide on lag orders. Perform diagnostic check. If all good, perform out-sample forecast. Check accuracy of both in-sample and out-sample forecast.
