Today marks an important milestone in our A Question of Style project. Our corpus is available to download from ORDO, The Open University’s data repository. The graphs below give an overview of the composition of the corpus. Our presentation from the RSVP/ VSAWC 2018 conference gives more details on the creation and processing of the Corpus. The Corpus is licenced under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence, so you are free re-use it for your own research if you acknowledge its provenance.
Happy New Year!
We have officially started our project. Our first meeting was with our colleague Wendy Mears, the Research Data Management Librarian here at the OU.
Wendy discussed with us how we can be among the first users of the OU’s new Open Research Data Online (ORDO) service. When fully launched in a few weeks’ time, you will be able to access our existing TEI-encoded texts. During the course of the project, we will use ORDO to share our growing corpus of encoded texts from the Edinburgh Review and Quarterly Review and other project outputs.
In the meantime, Wendy got us thinking about metadata and how to make our collection more discoverable, so we have added this to our list of tasks.
