In the article "How Facebook, Twitter and other data troves are revolutionizing social science" Heidi Ledford examines the transformation of social science research with regard to big data, digital behavioral data and computational social science. GESIS is mentioned and cited as a pioneer of this development in the person of Prof. Dr. Markus Strohmaier and Prof. Dr. Claudia Wagner.

“The biggest achievement is a shift in thinking about digital behavioural data as an interesting and useful source”, says Markus Strohmaier, a computational social scientist at the GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Cologne, Germany.
