The Institute for Social Science Research in collaboration with the College of Social Behavioral Sciences has put together a panel of four SBS faculty who will talk about their recent fellowship research leaves and the "staybattical."
Wondering about the Cloud? Dropbox? UDrive? How safe is your computer when you are using free WiFi? In this workshop Office for Information Technologies staff will discuss various options for backing up data and keeping it secure when you are doing research away from campus.
By taking guidance from our research faculty’s interests and supporting their efforts, the Institute draws its dynamic strengths and directions from the evolving enterprise of contemporary social research and delivers seminars on research issues.
Additionally, we offer short courses/workshops led by our consulting staff skilled in specific methods and data program packages. Methodology Consultants are funded by the Graduate School at UMass-Amherst.
