The academic publisher SAGE Publishing has relaunched its popular MethodSpace website, a free-entry online community with over 20,000 registered social and behavioural science researchers. Knowledge Speak brought this interesting information to us in their article, “SAGE Publishing relaunches MethodSpace with new Big Data Hub.”

Among the many different topics, MethodSpace includes a hub focused on how social science research is using big data. The new Big Data Hub is an extension of MethodSpace’s aim and mission, and reflects discussions on the methodological advances being made in computational social science, focused on helping scholars stay up-to-date.

The updated site features improved aesthetics and taxonomy to help community members find the information and ideas necessary for their research. The site also contains resources, calls for academic papers, job opportunities and how-tos, as well as comprehensive global events listings.
