Dataset on "ORF Sommergespräche" now on AUSSDA

CMC´s Andreas Riedl collaborated with AUSSDA to provide access to project data about "Strategies, Images and Issues in Political TV Interviews 1981-2016".

The Austrian Social Science Data Archive (AUSSDA) is a core social science research infrastructure in Austria, offering research data and archiving services. Providing open access to research date - in this case over 19.000 statements by politicians and journalists made during 125 TV interviews broadcasted by TV Austrian public broadcaster ORF - allows for a closer look at the research conducted in the project.

AUSSDA conducted a short interview with Andreas Riedl about the project and the value of sharing research data:
