A new paper entitled Sociologists using machine learning: Hermeneutic limitations of ‘big data’ text analytics if non-trivial concepts are taught has been published in the International Journal of Qualitative Methods (Q1, impact factor 3.6) by Renáta Németh, Domonkos Sik and Fanni Máté. We were pleased to read the reviews, e.g. “The article is the one of the fundamental researches in this area” and “I look forward to seeing future efforts as you proceed with this research“. We hope that we will be able to fulfil the latter, since we already have three international publications being reviewed.
