SAGE Invests in Content Analysis Tool for Social Science Researchers

SAGE made a major seed investment in Thusly, Inc., a startup providing research tools for doing Big Data analysis in document archives. The first investment from the SAGE Ocean initiative, it will support Thusly’s launch of TagWorks in the academic research market.

According to the press release, “TagWorks enables social science researchers to perform complex content analysis on very large document collections at up to ten times the speed of existing methods. The collaborative tool enables researchers to deeply analyze documents by asking internet-based workers a series of detailed questions to evaluate passages of text. TagWorks is currently being used to identify and report nuanced forms of misinformation in news articles such as ‘exaggerated metaphor,’ and ‘confusion of correlation and causation.’”
