Wikiwho

The core functionality of wikiwho is to parse the complete set of all historical revisions (versions) of a wikipedia article in order to find out who wrote and/or removed which exact text at what point in time. this means that given a specific revision of an article (e.g., the current one) wikiwho can determine for each word and special character which user first introduced that word and if and how it was deleted/reintroduced afterwards. this functionality is not offered by wikipedia as such and wikiwho was shown to perform this task with very high accuracy (~95%) and very efficiently, being the only tool that has been scientifically proven to perform this task that well.

GESIS Notebooks

Have a Binder-Ready repository? With GESIS Notebooks, turn this repository into a persistent Jupyter environment, allowing you to continue your analysis from anywhere at any time.

This service is intended for use by social scientists. You can build and launch all binder-ready projects without logging in. If you want to have more persistent projects, you need to log in.

GESIS Training

At GESIS we offer a wide range of events, especially training courses on empirical social research methods. Our theory founded and hands-on courses develop participants’ methods skills and are aimed at both early career and senior researchers from Germany, Europe, and the whole world.

FOSTER Open Sciences: Courses

FOSTER Plus (Fostering the practical implementation of Open Science in Horizon 2020 and beyond) is a 2-year, EU-funded project, carried out by 11 partners across 6 countries. The primary aim is to contribute to a real and lasting shift in the behaviour of European researchers to ensure that Open Science (OS) becomes the norm.

The FOSTER portal is an e-learning platform that brings together the best training resources addressed to those who need to know more about Open Science, or need to develop strategies and skills for implementing Open Science practices in their daily workflows. Here you will find a growing collection of training materials. Many different users - from early-career researchers, to data managers, librarians, research administrators, and graduate schools - can benefit from the portal. In order to meet their needs, the existing materials will be extended from basic to more advanced-level resources. In addition, discipline-specific resources will be created.
