CIVICA – Open Social Science: Documenting your research as you go
October 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Open Social Science: Documenting your research as you go
A key aspect of encouraging and developing ‘open science’ modes of research in the modern social sciences centres on being explicit about decision-making about all stages of the research process. Yet for all kinds of researchers, documenting your research as you go need not be an unpleasant, extra chore. Instead, it can become an integral and time-saving way of underpinning your research advances, strengthening your critical grasp on issues, avoiding common ‘timebomb’ problems, and improving the preparation of research for the later publication and depositing of data phases. Professor Patrick Dunleavy and Dr Tim Monteath lead this session, which covers some fundamentals of recording coding, analysis and research-shaping decisions in transparent and recoverable ways. The presentation and discussion will cover resources that may be useful for new researchers starting out and for experienced researchers seeking to improve their approach.
12:00 to 13:00 CEST
