AOM_web_scraping

A simple example of a Python script to scrape information of multiple websites - in this case of the names and affiliations of the participants to the Academy of Management Annual Meeting in 2014

This code is based on the workshop I taught at INSEAD on the use of Python coding in research in social sciences. I conducted a session on web scraping, while Julien Clement, another INSEAD PhD student, conducted a session on data manipulation and analysis with a particular focus on network analysis.

The companion PDF presentation covers the exercises done in class. The participants were first asked to complete the Codecademy introductory course in Python programming.

Installation

This script has been written and tested using Python 2.7 (Anaconda Pyton Distribution)

Modules required:

  • csv
  • os.path
  • re
  • time
  • urllib
