Description: LOPS - Longitudinal Online Profile Sampling is a method to study identity and identity change. The process involves collecting periodic samples of individuals' self-descriptions. This is accomplished most easily through collecting online profile information (e.g. a Twitter user's 'biography' entry). This OSF project will provide organization for a set of research articles, datasets and software tools that will describe the method and enable other researchers to use it.
