UK SAGE Publishing launches online data science courses for social scientists - 20 Sep 2017

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has launched SAGE Campus, a new series of online data science courses, to support social science researchers and equip them with a range of new skills to embrace the data revolution.

In 2016, SAGE and the University of Essex conducted a survey of over 9,000 academics with the aim of learning more about how big data is being used in social science research. The survey revealed that although there was a considerable appetite among researchers to work with big data, a number of barriers stood in their way, including a lack of skills. This is where SAGE Campus comes in; created in partnership with world-leading institutions, and with expert learning support from instructors available throughout, the online courses offer social scientists the key data science and programming skills they need to take advantage of the opportunities big data presents.

Launched in September, the first set of courses include: Introduction to Applied Data Science Methods for Social Scientists, in association with the Social Science Data Lab (D-Lab) at the University of California, Berkeley; Introduction to Python for Social Scientists, in association with the Royal Statistical Society; Practical Data Management with R for Social Scientists; and Interactive Visualization with R for Social Scientists, in association with the Royal Statistical Society Fundamentals of Quantitative Text Analysis for Social Scientists, in association with Essex Summer School of Social Science Data Analysis, University of Essex.
