Text-based tools can involve a number of functions. some of the most common include word frequency and/or density analysis, correlations, and word clouds.
Some projects involving text-related tools may include:
Text is Beautiful - This tool allows users to create word clouds, concept webs, and correlation wheels using text. This is a great tool for brainstorming, especially for research that involves more theoretical engagement.
Juxta - Juxta compares and collates multiple witnesses to a single textual work. This is especially useful for examining the history of a text over time. The desktop version also allows users to annotate Juxta-revealed comparisons and save the results.
Data for Research - After creating a free account, users can submit requests for mining and analyzing JSTOR content. By submitting a query, a user will receive a random sample of 1,000 of JSTOR's 4.6 million documents; more documents can be received by contacting JSTOR directly
