ProQuest TDM Studio

A guide on how to access and use ProQuest TDM Studio

ProQuest TDM Studio

ProQuest TDM Studio is ProQuest’s text and data mining platform. This platform enables researchers to create datasets using licensed ProQuest content and analyze those datasets by running Python or R scripts in an accompanying Jupyter Notebook. The platform’s workbench - where researchers access their datasets and Jupyter Notebook (an environment that combines human-readable text with computer-readable code) - enables researchers to work collaboratively on a project.  

Using ProQuest TDM Studio, researchers can upload data and scripts to the platform, and download and export their Jupyter Notebook and code within the confines of the 15 MB weekly limit. Researchers are not able to download the datasets that are created within the platform. Researchers should have experience using Python or R to use this platform effectively.  

See ProQuest's infoguide on TDM Studio for videos, powerpoints, and recorded presentations on getting started with TDM Studio.
