ACSPRI Social Science Methodology Conference 2018

University of Sydney | Wednesday December 12, 2018 – Friday December 14, 2018

Holme Building, University of Sydney

One of the challenges in the social science methods space is it's dynamic nature. Given this and the need to keep abreast of changes and innovation, this conference provides the opportunity to reflect on where we've come from, highlight where we are and imagine our future as social scientists.

A unique feature of this conference is that it is multi-disciplinary and brings together researchers and methodologists from a range of environments and contexts.

The conference is organised around four themes:

  • Research paradigms and designs;
  • Research methods and techniques;
  • Research technology and tools;
  • Datasets, data collections and data archiving.

Each theme will have a plenary, panel or keynote; sessions where papers are presented; and workshops as appropriate.

There will be three types of papers:

  1. Full papers where the full paper is blind peer reviewed (full paper in the conference proceedings);
  2. Work in progress papers where an abstract is reviewed (abstract in the conference proceedings).
  3. Posters - including a student poster competition (abstract in the conference proceedings).

Please note, you can still benefit from attending this conference even if you do not present a paper.

This year, we are also pleased to announce that we will be incorporating the ANU-NCRM Social-Biological Methods Festival
