«Social Research in the Digital Age»

Matt Salganik’s new book «Bit by Bit: Social Research in the Digital Age» (Princeton University Press) lays down the new (and not-so-new) rules for bringing data and the social sciences together. «I want my book to be readable and helpful to non-experts,» says Salganik, a sociologist at Princeton. «I hope the audience will be broad. People in the social sciences are facing this set of issues.» (Social sciences are dealing with a crisis that’s about data—reproducibility problems and statistical manipulations.)
