About us Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences Methodology shop

Methodology Shop

The Methodology Shop operates by appointment only!

Are you having statistical or methodological issues in your research?
We are a free advisory bureau for students and staff members at RUG (mainly Behavioral and Social Sciences), and we provide methodological or statistical support.

Asking for advice

There are two ways to ask for advice from the Methodology Shop:

Before consulting us, please investigate the matter as much as possible.
Also, have a look at this short guide to help you start your analysis.

Consultation slots are 15 minutes long. If you have a question about basic methods (t-test, linear regression) booking one slot is sufficient. For more complex methods or showing your data, please book two slots. Students are allowed to book a maximum of two slots per week.

Behavioural and Social Sciences students will receive precedence over students from other faculties. If you are from another faculty, be aware that our shopkeepers might not be familiar with some analyses.

All our shopkeepers are familiar with relatively simple techniques (regression, t-test, and programs such as SPSS, Jasp). Not all our employees can help with more advanced topics such as Manova, Multilevel analysis, or specific programs such as R (studio) or MLwiN. Hence, you can look up which subjects our employees are specialized in.

Booking an appointment

Make an Appointment for an in-person consultation.
In-person consultations take place in the Gadourek building - G0113.
