Dear Rahul & Dear Catherine,

Thank you for sharing the databasics.io resource. I will definitely try it
out in one of my study cases.

I have found your paper
data literary very informative. While reading it i got one question. Does
there exist a recent research on text analysis for political science? I
would be very grateful for any hint to the direction or link where i could
find the answer.

Thank you.

Best regards,

iulii selianko
