I'm a new user of an R package (tidy text mining) and I'd like to see what papers have used this package as examples for the kind of things I can do with it. Is there a way to do this?

    Best suggestion I have is read the help file - usually has examples. – Solar Mike Aug 5 '20 at 18:09
  • Sometimes (not often) papers will formally cite the package.
  • This is more likely to work if the authors have published a peer-reviewed paper that describes the package; it makes it easier to cite/more likely to be cited. In the case of the tidytext package (which may or may not be the package you're referring to), you can find the citation info here. More generally, try citation("package_name") within R. On Google Scholar, this page lists the articles that cite Silge and Robinson 2016.
  • Or you can use Google Scholar, which does a full-text search and may pick up the name from papers that mention it even if they haven't formally cited it.

Silge, Julia, and David Robinson. “Tidytext: Text Mining and Analysis Using Tidy Data Principles in R.” Journal of Open Source Software 1, no. 3 (July 11, 2016): 37. https://doi.org/10.21105/joss.00037.

  • Great, thanks so so much!! – Gabriella Aug 5 '20 at 22:11
