Taking DPTE to the field soon

Hello everybody, Reynaldo Rojo-Mendoza (University of Pittsburgh, Political Science) here. I concur with Daniel on the usefulness of the blog for building a network of scholars using DPTE and for sharing ideas, questions, etc. Props to Professors Redlawsk and Lau for starting things up!

I am a few months away from starting a full year of fieldwork in Mexico and I plan to collect experimental data using the DPTE. Since the stimuli and questionnaires I will use are in Spanish, I hope others can benefit from them for their own projects in the near future.

Nice move!!

Hi, Daniel Zizumbo (Vanderbilt) here, I see that you opened the blog, nice move!! in this way we can all be connected and share our work using the Dynamic Process Tracing Environment

Welcome to DPTE!

Welcome to our blog for the Lau & Redlawsk Dynamic Process Tracing Environment (DPTE). This space is available for researchers using the system to communicate. We don’t have any predefined idea of what that means, but we imagine this can be used to talk about the projects you are doing using DPTE, to ask questions and maybe get answers about the system, and to share tips and techniques. We will also post update information to the system here and try to use it as a way to connect the growing DPTE community.

You most likely got here from the main website for DPTE at http://dpte.polisci.uiowa.edu. But in case you didn’t you now know how to get there. The main site includes access to the system itself as well as a user guide and FAQ. And, if you find it hard to remember the site address, we now have a much easier address for researchers to get to the front page. Just go to http://www.processtracing.org and you’ll be there! See, takes you to the same place.

So welcome, and we hope you’ll find the system usable and useful in your research.

Dave Redlawsk & Rick Lau
