SocioSite.net Is a site for providing information for social scientists
The SocioSite Project
The Internet is rapidly transforming the production, distribution, and consumption of knowledge and information. Information is made available in electronic formats and through differing network applications. The information is expanding at a very fast growing rate. Much of the latest sociological research finds its way onto the Internet long before it reaches print or other traditional media. Coming to terms with the Internet and its resources is a most pressing and necessary task for all social scientists.
The SocioSite is designed to get access to information and resources which are relevant for sociologists and other social scientists. It has been designed from a global point of view - it gives access to the world wide scene of social sciences. The intention is to provide a comprehensive listing of all sociology resources on the Internet. The enormity and constantly changing nature of the Internet makes it impossible to develop a definitive and comprehensive listing. That's why the SocioSite will always be 'under construction'.
The SocioSite is a project based at the faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam. We present the resources and information that are important for the international sociological scene. It links students of sociology to many interesting, sociologically relevant locations in cyberspace. The SocioSite is a comprehensive information system which is very easy to use. That is why it has become a very popular yellow guide for social scientists from all over the world. The SocioSite is a toolkit for us social scientists. It contains high quality resources and texts that can be used as wheels for the sociological mind.
