Cortext dataset as third part material

CorText Manager Q&A forumCategory: Something elseCortext dataset as third part material
Beadavi asked 2 weeks ago

Hello,
We are going to publish a literature review and we have used data from the WOS to produce our graphs and cortext analysis.
Can we cite the cortext dataset as third part material and if so how? Should we use another repository?
Thank you in advance for your feedback

Hi Béatrice,

You have two strategies.

1/ You could use a open repository, as Zenodo. In order to achieve that, you could to download your full project using the button shown in the picture below.

2/ Or you could leave it on CorTexT using the URL accessible next to the download button (-> https://assets.cortext.net/docs/ and some letters and numbers. See below where to get this link). We are keeping these kind of URL through time, as they are many articles referencing some visualizations, results and databases, which are publicly accessible.

You have to cite CorTexT Manager, as shown directly in your project dashboard and here.
But when it comes to opening a WOS database, there are (I suppose) a few constraints:

  • The GDPR
  • The subscription your parent organization has with Clarivate. And I do not know yet what are the Clarivate policies regarding their data (and I am curious).

The databases that produce CorTexT Manager have four type of data:

  • raw variables: directly parsed from the data source, without any change;
  • pre-processed variables: information extracted, divided and cleaned by the parser, from the raw variables;
  • calculated variables: built from results after running CorText Manager analysis scripts;
  • resources added by users: variables added by users (e.g. edited lists of terms, external dictionaries, added metadata using a tsv or a csv).

The raw variables fall under GDPR and Clarivate policies.
The other variables fall under GDPR, and CorTexT citation(s), i.e. the global CorTexT citation and some specific citations at method and algorithm level (for calculated variables, results and visualizations).

I hope it helps!
