Term Dates

Plot the use of a term by date #

This analysis job takes a single dataset and plots the occurrences of a term within it by date.

To start this job, select the questions: “How has the frequency of a term changed over time? When was a word used within a particular dataset?”

This job results in a graph of the occurrences of the given term within your dataset, plotted by date, as well as those occurrences downloadable as a CSV file. This allows us to answer a wide variety of questions:

How has the frequency of use of a term changed over time? (Input: a dataset of interest, plotting for the use of a given term)

When was a term first introduced into the literature? (Input: a dataset of interest, looking for the place when the term is first introduced)

How has a term moved through the literature? (Input: comparing these graphs for the same term across different journals and time periods)
