This 2 hour workshop is an introduction to text analysis in R and is the fourth of a 4-part Spring 2018 semester R workshop series. We will use two large text datafiles and make such datasets useable in R for basic text analyses through pre-processing. We will learn commonly used functions for text analysis, such as word clouds and frequency graphs.
Prerequisites: Minimal coding experience necessary (review the IntroR.mov and Intro_R.R files on our OSF site if you need some review), and need to have the latest version of R and RStudio installed.
Necessary materials: Download ALL files in the “IV. Text Analysis in R” folder on our OSF site (https://osf.io/6jb9t/) and save them on your DESKTOP. All participants need to bring a laptop and option to bring your own data.
