What did researchers read and cite in 2019?

SAGE MethodSpace features original posts, interviews, and resources about using, developing, teaching, or writing about research methods.  As 2019 draws to a close, we’re highlighting relevant open access articles that attracted readers’ attentions this year.

Big Data & Society (BD&S) is an Open Access peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes interdisciplinary work principally in the social sciences, humanities and computing and their intersections with the arts and natural sciences about the implications of Big Data for societies.

The Journal’s key purpose is to provide a space for connecting debates about the emerging field of Big Data practices and how they are reconfiguring academic, social, industry, business and governmental relations, expertise, methods, concepts and knowledge. 

See the Big Data & Society blog for related posts.

Here are references and links for the most read and cited articles. You will note that the most read and cited sources were not necessarily published in 2019.
