Join Kristy Golubiewski-Davis to explore how sentiment analysis can be applied to board game reviews. In this workshop, she will walk you through her process of determining a research question, collecting data, using R to apply sentiment analysis, and preliminary interpretations. This workflow is based on a larger research project, but will focus on working through the methodology with a single board game so that participants can see the process from start to finish.
The workshop will be presented as a Zoom lecture (link) with an open discussion at the end. The software that will be used includes: Octoparse, R, and R Studio. A list of R packages used in the workshop will be made available here before the workshop. It is not necessary to have the software downloaded in advance - these are provided for your reference. The workshop will be presented in a method walkthrough format.
