The SAGE Ocean Blog is focused on the methodological innovation and computational advancement that new ways of research have brought to the social sciences. Concentrating on five content streams: skills, tools & technology, diversity, methods innovation and impact & society—the SAGE Ocean Blog is a great place to reach other members of the social science research community.


The audience for SAGE Ocean is comprised of social science researchers (senior academics as well as early career), data and computer scientists (both academic and in private industry), technologists, business people, government, NGOs, policy makers and students (undergraduates and graduate level students). The largest audience is social scientists looking to engage with computational methods and big data research, followed by established computational social scientists, social data scientists and other related researchers who are interested in sharing their research, knowledge and resources.
