Research tools 

There is a vast range of software tools available for social scientists looking to work with big data and computational methods, but finding the right tool for a research project isn’t always easy. To save you time, we’ve created a directory of widely-used software tools for exploratory data analysis.

This directory is in development and we’ll regularly be adding more tools to each category. Help us to build a comprehensive list of high quality software by suggesting a tool, or writing a review.
