Digital Scholarship

The term Digital Scholarship refers to the use of digital, data-driven methods like data analysis, machine learning and big data technologies which are opening up new research methodologies in all disciplines. UB Bern provides support by making data and tools available, educating and offering guidance on their use, and also conducting its own data-driven projects.



Would you like to use Swiss media content for text and data mining (TDM)? The UB Bern participates in the project Swissdox@LiRI! Search 250 print and online media and get the full texts or transcripts for your own analysis. In addition to an intuitive user interface, a programming interface (API) is now also available. You can find more information here.
