Roles and Reusability of Video Data in Social Studies of Interaction. SCARP Case Study No. 5
This case study has been produced for the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) SCARP project, funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) to investigate disciplinary attitudes and approaches to data deposit. The study reviews the curation landscape in several interdisciplinary fields that use video analysis in studies of human interaction. Field research for the study involved semi-structured interviews with researchers and participant observation in their informal data sharing and analysis sessions. Researchers were working in a variety of projects across social sciences, humanities and computing; from domains including human geography, psychology, sociology, social informatics, and linguistics. The study primarily focuses on uses of video in ethnographic studies and in eye movement research.
