Dear List,I am running a 5-day ACSPRI training course on Big Data Analysis for Social Scientists - University of Melbourne, 3-7 February, 2020.
We mainly use the R statistical software, with particular focus on:
- vosonSML ("social media lab") R package (https://github.com/vosonlab/vosonsml) for network/text data collection
- VOSON Dashboard R/Shiny web app (https://github.com/vosonlab/VOSONDash) for data collection (via vosonSML) and network/text analysis
- igraph for network analysis
- Text analysis using packages such as: tm, quanteda, RTextTools, wordcloud, tidytext and topicmodels
Course material from previous related courses I have run are here:
