Social Science, Collaboration and Big Data

September 29, 2016

SAGE Publishing is today releasing a white paper with the results of a survey of more than 9,000 social scientists around the world on their use of big data. Some of the findings:

  • Thirty-three percent of respondents said they had been involved in big data research of some kind and 49 percent said they were “definitely planning on doing so in the future” or “might do so in the future.”
  • Sixty percent of respondents who are doing big data research had done so within the last 12 months.
  • While 79 percent of those doing big data research have collaborated with other academics, the majority of researchers had not shared the code or software they developed with other researchers.
