Useful Resources for Social Science Research / by Flavio Azevedo

 

The list of resources below is intended for (my) personal use. It contains primers, tutorials, guides I have used/encountered and/or want to learn more about it. These are related to producing better science, open-science, methods, statistics, visualization, R & RStudio.

Intro

Publication geared

  • ggally: the ally of ggplot2 (display of multiple regression coefficients and its diagnostics, networks, time-series, distributions, etc.).

  • ggstatsplot: Plots with Statistical Details (most common types of statistical tests (parametric, non-parametric, and robust versions of t-tets, anova, correlation, and contingency tables)

  • ggpubrggplot2 based publication ready plots [tutorial at sthda]

  • cowplot: publication-ready theme for ggplot2 (e.g., easy add panels A, B, C). Here's code for adding panels to non-ggplot2 R-base graphs.
