Political Methodology Group
We have applied to form a Political Methodology Specialist Group of the Political Studies Association and hope to launch the group in the new year. The Political Methodology Specialist Group will aim to bring together a network of political scientists and researchers in related disciplines who utilize quantitative methods in their research. The aim is to build on the successful work of the PSA Quantitative Methods Network, which focuses on teaching, to promote innovative theoretical and methodological approaches to the use of quantitative methods in all aspects of political science research. 

Previous conference
On 9th of January 2015, the University of Oxford hosted the PSA Quantitative Methods Network Conference.
