Ressouces for Teaching

Database for Variables of Content Analysis (DOCA) 

Created with Sketch.

The open access database compiles, systematizes and evaluates relevant content-analytical variables of communication and political science research areas and topics. The aim of DOCA is to provide easily accessible examples of variables and their categories (values) used in content analysis. These examples can serve as a basis for further research projects. DOCA provides entries for single variables (e.g. actors, issues,...) and more complex theoretical constructs (often measured by more than one variable e.g., americanization).

The database offers a starting point for the operationalization of content-analytical questions and provides a basis for standardization (where possible and useful) and also comparability of content analytic studies. Furthermore, the database aims to contribute to equal opportunities between all researchers in this field by providing free access to important resources.
