More experienced LaTeX users If you are familiar with LaTeX you might want to skip the first part of Chapter 11. The second part may be useful as it includes information on how to dynamically create BibTeX bibliographies with knitr and how to include knitr output in a Beamer slideshow. Less experienced LaTeX/Markdown users If you do not have experience with LaTeX or Markdown you may benefit from reading, or at least skimming, the introductory chapters on these top topics (chapters 11 and 13) before reading Part III.

Each stage is part of the reproducible research workflow covered in this book. Tools for reproducibly gathering data are covered in Part II. Part III teaches tools for tying the data we gathered to our statistical analyses and presenting 17 18 Reproducible Research with R and RStudio the results with tables and figures. Part IV discusses how to tie these findings into a variety of documents you can use to advertise your findings. Instead of starting to use the individual tools of reproducible research as soon as you learn them I recommend briefly stepping back and considering how the stages of reproducible research tie together overall.
