Text mining & text analysis

This guide contains resources for researchers about text mining and text analysis (sometimes known as distant reading).

Managing data

Data and text mining often involves working with and storing large data sets. In order to perform text and data mining one of the requirements placed on researchers is that all research data, regardless of format, is stored securely. When considering storage not just security should be kept in mind, it is recommended you also consider:

  • Data formats
  • Expected volume of data
  • Privacy and/or security requirements
  • Access requirements
  • Period of time storage will be required
  • Backing up important data and original data sources
