Submit a proposal to win six months of free text and data mining access to selected library databases

ProQuest is accepting proposals from research teams at academic institutions and will select five teams to provide with six months free access to TDM Studio, ProQuest’s new text and data mining solution.

Access to TDM studio will allow the research team to use library-subscribed ProQuest content for TDM methodologies like topic modeling, geographic analysis, feature analysis, network analysis, and others. Specific content available via subscription of the University of Missouri Libraries includes:

  • ProQuest Historical Newspapers: historical full-text of major newspapers including the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and more
  • ABI/INFORM: business and management scholarly and trade journals, market reports, industry reports, case studies, news, etc.
  • Early Modern Books and Early English Books Online
  • EconLit: journal articles, books, and dissertations in economics

and several other databases. See here for a more complete list of ProQuest content available to University of Missouri researchers: http://proxy.mul.missouri.edu/login?url=http://www.proquest.com/databases . Teams may also upload their own datasets.

Available to faculty and graduate students, the program will allow a selected team to support 1-5 users working on the same project for up to six months. Team members can be from more than one institution, and at least one team member must have working knowledge of text and data mining methodologies using R or Python.

The deadline for submissions is November 30; contact Steven Pryor, Digital Scholarship Librarian, right away for all the details.
