Scottish Social Survey Network
The network will organise a series of Master classes and seminars over the course of 2007-2010.
The master classes will be led by international experts in the field of social survey data analysis. Venues for the master classes will move around Scotland.
We actively encourage researchers within the network to volunteer to present their work at meetings. Seminars will ordinarily run for two hours and feature two related papers – usually, one applied substantive paper, and one with a methodological focus in a related field. Seminars will ordinarily be held on Thursdays (3-5pm). Usual dates for the seminars will be January, May, September and December each year, though there is some flexibility.
