This week we have completed the compilation of the full corpus (data set), which we will use in our study of interdisciplinary discourse. The corpus consists of the afore mentioned GEC journal as well as 5 other interdisciplinary and 5 monodisciplinary journals.
Our partners Elsevier have provided us with the journals and contacted their editors to ensure they are happy to cooperate with us on the project. The journals included are: Agriculture, Ecosystems & Environment (AEE), Biosystems (B), Computers, Environment and Urban Systems (CEUS), Environmental Pollution (EP), Global Environmental Change (GEC), Journal of Rural Studies (JRS), Advances in Water Resources (AWR), Journal of Strategic Information Systems (JSIS), Plant Science (PS), Resource and Energy Economics (REE), and Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment (TRTE).
We would like to express gratitude to Sarah Huggett and everyone else at Elsevier who has been involved in this process, as well as all the journal editors who accepted to participate in our research.
The details about the corpus are published in the following blog post.
