RWI – Leibniz Institute for Economic Research and Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf jointly organize the first Studi-BUCH Interdisciplinary Text-As-Data Workshop. The workshop is aimed at researchers from any field who are already investigating or would like to investigate a topic in education research using text data. The two-day event consists of a workshop with regular presentations complemented by focus sessions in which new research ideas and datasets are presented. Computer scientists and other experts will be present to give feedback, exchange ideas, and provide opportunities to collaborate.
Given the special format, we invite two types of submissions:
- If you already use quantitative text analysis methods, please submit a working paper or an extended abstract. Your submission must include your research question, data and methods, and – if available – your key findings.
- If you are not yet employing quantitative text analysis but have access to textual data that can be used to answer relevant questions in the field of Education, please send a data report of up to two pages describing the dataset(s) and your research questions and ideas.
We do not charge a workshop fee, but participants must pay for their accommodation and travel expenses.
Submission Deadline: March 15, 2023
Please e-mail your paper, abstract, or data report to: Friederike.Hertweck@rwi-essen.de.
