The Economic and Social Research Center hosted the biennial Research Methods Festival at the University of Bath. If you weren’t able to attend in person, enjoy this series of posts.
Today’s Festival highlight is from SAGE’s own Katie Metler, the Executive Head of Methods Innovation at SAGE Publishing. She has generously shared her presentation slides:
Katie discussed Ocean, “an initiative from SAGE Publishing to help social scientists navigate vast data sets and work with new technologies.” On the SAGE Ocean site, you will see Research Tools, as well as SAGE Campus courses designed to address your skills gaps.
Still not clear about what is meant by the term, Big Data? See this video for an explanation from Partha Lahiri, and find additional videos here. Learn about trends in computational social sciences in this white paper. Read about how scholars of all kinds are using Big Data, including qualitative and mixed methods researchers as well as those using statistical and emerging analytic methods, from these open access and subscription journals. Join the Ocean community, get involved and contribute!
