Methods Blogs

December 19, 2008


In recent years there’s been a proliferation of scholar-blogs like Freakonomics, Paul Krugman’s blog, and many others. Like everything online, most scholar-blogging falls in the “non-essential knowledge” category, but I’ve found they offer a timely and interesting way to learn about new areas of research and thinking. Here are a few examples I like in social science research methods: Political scientists from George Washington University (and a couple other schools) maintain the consistently interesting scholar-blog The Monkey Cage. A team at Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science contribute to the Social Science Statistics Blog.  Political methodologist Andrew Gelman keeps a busy blog with a complicated name Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science. Political scientist Nolan McCarty recently started a blog. Others I’ve found interesting and useful include: Empirical Legal Studies and the aggregators Intute: Social Sciences and Economics Roundtable.
