Dataset Description (Abstract): This dataset contains the coding of the sources that appeared or were openly referenced in all news items about the 2014 Scottish independence referendum which were broadcast on BBC Reporting Scotland between 18 August and 18 September 2014. The file records the name of each source, the duration of their appearance or quotation, their gender, the side they supported in the referendum, the source category they belonged in (elite official; expert; non-elite official; unofficial; confidential; unaccounted), whether they were interviewed or paraphrased; whether they were identified by name or in generic terms; whether they were used once or multiple times in the same item; and whether they proposed new arguments or responded to someone else's. The news programmes themselves are available from the broadcaster.
Dataset Description (TOC): Source analysis.sav.
