FAQ – Frequently asked questions

How did you came up with this idea?

I did and still do work with different software to enhance my research process as good as possible while writing different theses or participating regularly in research projects. By speaking with friends and colleagues I realized that information on this topic is still quite diffuse. Some of the software I finally discovered after a long period of research. Since I do like to share, don’t I, I wanted to contribute as well.

What is it all about, this website?

The Website SoSciSo lists all the different software programs supporting the social science research process in reference to the different phases of this process. On the one hand you will find the software overview which is including all the programs sortable by different criterias. On the other hand there will be regularly blog entries about different software as well as about the different phases of the research process focussing on the software usage within.
