Introduction

e are living in a digital era where most of our daily activities take place both through applications and computers. This causes the big data phenomenon which is an important subject for scientific research with increasing of available tools and processing power. As a natural outcome of this trend, a growing number of social science scholars are using computational methods for analyzing social behavior. Theories of social sciences such as agenda setting, selective exposure and two-step of information flow have been using as a theoretical backbone by many computational researchers. The methods of computational social science do not mean that a method is only executed on a computer – social science scholars have been using computers in their research for a long time. Computational social science methods in research are expansion and enhancement of the existing methodological toolbox.

Objective

On this book, we will focus on the implementation of computational social science methods and touch upon the opportunities and challenges of this method in social sciences. Therefore, the objective of this book sheds light upon (1) the infrastructure which should be built to gain required skill sets, (2) the tools which have used in computational social sciences and (3) the methods which have developed and applied into computational social sciences. The studies that are related with the theoretical frameworks and empirical research findings will be in the scope of this book.

Target Audience

The target audience of this book will be made up of researchers, scholars and students who are working in various disciplines of social sciences and individuals who have interest on learning the computational methods in social sciences.
