Jisc gateway to text and data-mining – status update | Jisc scholarly communications
AllyFarnhill's bookmarks 2018-09-12
Over the past few months, we have been investigating the opportunities for a possible Jisc-delivered text and data mining (TDM) service and analysing options for how we might do so, initially across two existing Jisc services: CORE and Journals Archive. These two platforms already deliver significant amounts of digital content, in the form of scholarly articles, and their combined corpus could immediately facilitate new research opportunities and lines of enquiry if text mining techniques were applied to it. Currently referred to as the Jisc Gateway to Text and Data Mining (or JGTDM), the scoping phase of a potential service has completed, so now seems like a good point to take stock and to communicate about what we have been doing.
