Work Package 9

WP9 aims to address how the infrastructure can meet the increasing demand for text analysis tools and training resources among the social science community interested in using political texts. There are a number of challenges faced by this community of scholars: a) the level of entry skills is high with computing expertise required; b) the tools (e.g. dictionaries, classifiers) because they cross disciplinary boundaries with different archiving practices are scattered across the Internet; c) the tools and resources are not updated; d) their publication and distribution is mostly diffused through word-of-mouth or specialized communities such as #rstats on social media.
