Based on the first RISIS project from 2014-2018, RISIS goes on given the high interest on RISIS datasets and their integration. RISIS2 has started in 2019 and provides ongoing access to the existing RISIS datasets:

Uses and potentialities of the CorTexT-RISIS Platform

October 6, 2015 @ 10:00 am - October 7, 2015 @ 5:00 pm



Course objectives

The objective of the course is to introduce participants to the uses of the CorTexT.Risis platform, a research facility in S&T Studies proposed under the RISIS Infrastructure Project. Thanks to short lectures, demos, worshop and practical training participants should get enough skills to develop research work on various types of DataBase that trace science and innovation dynamics.

The course will focus on three majors imputs :

  • An overall view of the scientific and technological landscape of platforms of Digital Humanities and a synthesis of the key heuristics that ground the various analysis to be mobilized with the Platform.
  • A step by step demonstration of how to use the CorTexT.Risis Platform: database upload and parsing, Terms extraction, Statistics and demography of entities, socio-semantic analysis.
  • A learning-by-doing approach of using the various potentialities of the CorTexT.Risis Platform, with pratical session in groups.

The participants will be trained to use the various scripts offered for terminologic extraction and network analysis in order to analyse databases and frame research questions. The training sessions will be oriented towards the understanding of co-word analysis and the interpretation of graphs. Some demos will be proposed as template for the analysis of socio-semantic network in S&T dynamics.
