Web Scraping for Text Analysis in R, instructed by Greg Matthews. The workshop runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 27 & 28. Lunch will be provided.
Social science researchers are often interested in retrieving data from the internet. Often, this can be accomplished using so-called "web-scraping" techniques. This course introduces the statistical programming language R, then demonstrates techniques for web scraping using R. Finally, tools for analyzing text data in R will be presented.
The workshop costs $100 for Five College Students, and $200 for Five College Faculty. For more information click here.
