Welcome to CoSSci

Begin an analysis by selecting one of the tools in the left-hand menu (one of EA, LRB, SCCS, or WNAI) and Execute it. You can explore these datasets further by modifying the variables used for the analyses. For more information about using this gateway, including how to select variables for the individual analyses, please visit the Visual Manual for CoSSci and the Dow-Eff functions in R.

Alan Lomax's clickable Global Jukebox YouTube portrays many indigenous dances of the Ethnographic Atlas cultures. A CoSSci designer collaborated with Lomax in moving his expressive culture dataset to PCs. We hope to include the expressive culture dataset in CoSSci in the future.
