On this site you you will find some of my R-tutorials (on diagonal reference models, marginal effects, micro-macro models) and an introduction to conceptual models. Conceptual models may help you in organizing your thought process and may help a lay audience in understanding your research ideas. You can still find older versions of my course Social Networks Analysis for social scientists here but I strongly recommend you to check out SNASS to see if I and Bas Hofstra were already able to update the material.
With that, thanks for reading and enjoy!
