Question: Can I use Factiva to text mine the Wall Street Journal?


Text mining Factiva and the Wall Street Journal is possible by working directly with the publisher, Dow Jones. The price per project is substantial. If you have funding, please reach out to the Business Librarians for approximate figures and Dow Jones contact information: email us by using the Ask A Librarian Form, select "Business" as your subject, and reference this FAQ.

If you do not have funding, you can locate alternative sources of minable business news via our Text Data Mining guide. Good places to start: The New York Times annotated corpus in the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) or the ProQuest Historical Newspapers Text Data Collection.

Note: NYU's subscription to Factiva and the Wall Street Journal does not support text mining. Do not attempt to scrape or crawl this resource, as it is a violation of our user agreement and will result in all of NYU's access being shut off.
