Term Extraction and network maping

I did a term extraction to be used for my network mapping. Some terms are irrelevant, and I deleted those terms and resaved the .tsv file.  When I tried doing the network mapping, it went ahead and used the original file including those terms I didn’t t want. How can I use this newly saved file for my mapping?

Dear CorTexT user,
You should index again the dataset, in order to apply the updated keywords list to the date themselves.
Example, for a dataset named chloro-sci-2014-2020-v02.db:

  1. CorText Manager > Terms Extraction > chloro-sci-2014-2020-v02.db > title + abstract > List length = 150 + Number of time slices = 2 + time slices distribution = homogeneous
  2. Updates on the term list
  3. CorText Manager > Corpus Terms Indexer > chloro-sci-2014-2020-v02.db > Abstract + ISIID + Keywords + Title + Optionally you can name the new indexation that will be generated = terms-cleaned
  4. Do other calculation on the field named terms-cleaned 

I hope it helps
