An Efficiency Comparison of Document Preparation Systems Used in Academic Research and Development

The choice of an efficient document preparation system is an important decision for any academic researcher. To assist the research community, we report a software usability study in which 40 researchers across different disciplines prepared scholarly texts with either Microsoft Word or LaTeX. The probe texts included simple continuous text, text with tables and subheadings, and complex text with several mathematical equations. We show that LaTeX users were slower than Word users, wrote less text in the same amount of time, and produced more typesetting, orthographical, grammatical, and formatting errors. On most measures, expert LaTeX users performed even worse than novice Word users. LaTeX users, however, more often report enjoying using their respective software. We conclude that even experienced LaTeX users may suffer a loss in productivity when LaTeX is used, relative to other document preparation systems. Individuals, institutions, and journals should carefully consider the ramifications of this finding when choosing document preparation strategies, or requiring them of authors.

What is Racial Domination
When students of race and racism seek direction, they can find no single comprehensive
source that provides them with basic analytical guidance or that offers insights into the
elementary forms of racial classification and domination. We believe the field would
benefit greatly from such a source, and we attempt to offer one here. Synchronizing and
building upon recent theoretical innovations in the area of race, we lend some conceptual
clarification to the nature and dynamics of race and racial domination so that students of
the subjects—especially those seeking a general (if economical) introduction to the vast
field of race studies—can gain basic insight into how race works as well as effective (and
fallacious) ways to think about racial domination. Focusing primarily on the American
context, we begin by defining race and unpacking our definition. We then describe how
our conception of race must be informed by those of ethnicity and nationhood. Next, we
identify five fallacies to avoid when thinking about racism. Finally, we discuss the resilience
of racial domination, concentrating on how all actors in a society gripped by racism
reproduce the conditions of racial domination, as well as on the benefits and drawbacks
of approaches that emphasize intersectionality."
