Анализ качества социально-политических дискуссий в Интернете: тестирование методологии

Translated title of the contribution: Key Parameters of Online Discussions: Using Discursive Analysis Techniques

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article presents the results of a study by the authors regarding the identification of various parameters of online discussions. Based on an in-depth analysis of the content of 11 online discussions related to pension reform in Russia, the authors identify and evaluate the main parameters regarding the quality of socio-political Internet discussions in terms of their deliberation. The identification of such parameters allows us to formulate the essence of the opinions of the participants in the discourse regarding various social problems (for example, supporting or denying pension reform). As a result, data arrays are formed that connect the original author’s text of the posts with a certain generalized opinion, which in the future will make it possible to predict the type of opinions depending on the content of the text, to reveal the multiplicity and ambiguity of opinions expressed by people on a relevant topic. In the most detailed way, the article analyzes such parameters of discussions as argumentation and civility. The research methodology based on the concept of Jürgen Habermas, which can be used in similar studies in the future, is presented in detail.
