Notes

Abstract: The JSTOR Data for Research (DfR) tool enables researchers to mine the content in JSTOR, a digital archive of journals and other materials in a wide range of disciplines. This research project uses DfR to examine the occurrence of newspapers in scholarly literature and analyze the disciplines and key terms associated with journal articles that use newspapers in their research. By topic modeling the data extracted from DfR, this presentation will also explore what scholars write about when they use newspapers in their research. Is there a difference in topics when the predominant New York Times is used compared to local newspapers like the Arizona Daily Star? How do researchers use the Chicago Tribune compared to the Chicago Defender, an African-American newspaper? Are Mexican-American papers such as El Tucsonense from Arizona or El Democrata Fronterizo from Texas being used by scholars? This discussion will also focus on how tools like JSTOR Data for Research can facilitate new discoveries in digital scholarship.
