IQSS Research Assistant - Social Science Statistics Blog Project

Students working on this project will import Professor Gary King’s blogs from the Social Science Statistics website (a non OpenScholar site) into an OpenScholar site. We already have the data in the format we need to import from an Excel spreadsheet, but importing distorts the formatting. Students working on this project will follow step-by-step instructions to correct this. We estimate it will take approximately 5 minutes for each blog post (possibly longer for more complicated posts). We have about 780 blog posts to import.


  • Must be a current Harvard student with at least half-time status
