9780761957317: Neural Networks: An Introductory Guide for Social Scientists (New Technologies for Social Research series)

Neural networks have influenced many areas of research but have only just started to be utilized in social science research. Neural Networks provides the first accessible introduction to this analysis as a powerful method for social scientists. It provides numerous studies and examples that illustrate the advantages of neural network analysis over other quantitative and modeling methods in wide-spread use among social scientists. The author, G. David Garson, presents the methods in an accessible style for the reader who does not have a background in computer science. Features include an introduction to the vocabulary and framework of neural networks, a concise history of neural network methods, a substantial review of the literature, detailed neural network applications in the social sciences, coverage of the most common alternative neural network models, methodological considerations in applying neural networks, examples using the two leading software packages for neural network analysis, and numerous illustrations and diagrams. This introductory guide to using neural networks in the social sciences will enable students, researchers, and professionals to utilize these important new methods in their research and analysis.

In 1999 he won the Okidata Instructional Web Award from the Computers and Multimedia Section of the American Political Science Association, in 2002 received an NCSU Award for Innovative Excellence in Teaching and Learning with Technology, and in 2003 received an award "For Outstanding Teaching in Political Science" from the American Political Science Association and the National Political  Science Honor Society, Pi Sigma Alpha. In 2008 the NCSU Public Administration Program was named in the top 10 PA schools in the nation in information systems management.  Prof. Garson is editor of and contributor to Handbook of Public Information Systems, Third Edition.(2010); Handbook of Research on Public Information Technology (2008), Patriotic Information Systems:  Privacy, Access, and Security Issues of Bush Information Policy (2008), Modern Public Information Technology Systems (2007), and author of Public Information Technology and E-Governance: Managing the Virtual State (2006), editor of Public Information Systems: Policy and Management Issues (2003), coeditor of Digital Government: Principles and Practices (2003), coauthor of Crime Mapping (2003), author of Guide to Writing Quantitative Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (Dekker, 2001), editor of Social Dimensions of Information Technology (2000),  Information Technology and Computer Applications in Public Administration: Issues and Trends (1999) and is author of Neural Network Analysis for Social Scientists (1998), Computer Technology and Social Issues (1995), Geographic Databases and Analytic Mapping (1992), and is author, coauthor, editor, or coeditor of 17 other books and author or coauthor of over 50 articles. He has also created award-winning American Government computer simulations, CD-ROMs, and six web sites for Prentice-Hall and Simon & Schuster (1995-1999).  For the last 28 years he has also served as editor of the Social Science Computer Review and is on the editorial board of four additional journals. His widely-cited online textbook, Statnotes: Topics in Multivariate Analysis (2006-2009), is used by over 1.5 million people a year. Professor Garson received his undergraduate degree in political science from Princeton University (1965) and his doctoral degree in government from Harvard University (1969).

Review:

`Garson′s book would be a good buy for someone setting out to apply neural networks to their data. It takes a balanced approach, trying to make it clear where they would be applicable and where traditional statisitcs might be a better bet. It is certainly easy to read′ - British Journal of Mathematical and Statisistical Psychology

`A useful reference source for terminology, mathematical background, possible application areas and pointers towards software use′ - Statistical Methods in Medical Research
