To what extent "digital methods" is emerging as a specific approach in digital social studies?
1. Digital Methods seems to be located between three distinct areas/disciplines a) Science and Technology Studies; b) Information visualization and c) Media Studies.
2. A cluster emerges around other methodologies to study the web such as Webometrics; Social Network Analysis and Hyperlink Network Analysis. This appears as the most structured cluster, with the authorities of the whole graph and strong internal interconnections in terms of keywords and journals of publications. Digital Methods seems particularly far/disconnected from this cluster.
3. The buzzword “Big Data” is at center of one of the main clusters, attracting approaches, topics and devices more or less connected with the world of the “media”; although digital methods appear connected to several component of the “Big Data” cluster, the latter is not directly connected via keywords to the former
