TDM Studio is a text and data mining solution for research, teaching and learning.

About ProQuest TDM

TDM Studio places the power of text and data mining directly in the hands of researchers. This solution from ProQuest gives students, faculty and researchers access to rights-cleared content and text and data mining tools to help make new connections and uncover trends and insights. TDM Studio supports two paths to new discoveries:

  • TDM Studio Workbench is designed for experienced researchers who use their own coding methodologies. Workbench provides full programmatic access to content using Python or R.
  • TDM Studio Visualization is designed for users of all levels to quickly spot trends and generate insights. Data visualizations provide researchers an option to interrogate ProQuest content using interactive, graphical representations of the data and require no coding.
