We decided to launch the “CCS Amsterdam” lab for Computational Communication Science. This is a collaboration between scholars from the UvA and VU aimed at developing and stimulating the use of Computational Methods in Communication Science research. Data, tools, analyses and results should be as transparent, open and easy to share and reuse as possible. We firmly believe that newly available digital data sets, analysis methods and processing power can help improve the state of the art in communication research.
(obviously, this site is very much work in progress 🙂 )
