Text mining is a rapidly growing field of scholarly research that has the potential to impact scholarly research of text based materials. It is a rapidly growing area of research within the scholarly community. JSTOR and Portico are developing a text mining platform and service that will have tools for the non-text miner, novices, intermediate text miners, and advanced text miners. The service will also have a robust education and community space.
