Tools Articles

  • Date: 22 Oct 2012

Alceste is a data analysis program that uses sophisticated statistical processing to help make you sense of large amounts of text in a short amount of time. Unlike other packages that help you code and retrieve text according to your own analytic framework. Alceste works 'by applying a set of statistical clustering techniques to your text. Different forms of language related to your research topic are identified by the program, and the text categorized into clusters according to the distribution of the vocabulary found.'
