DocumentCloud – Analyze, Annotate, Publish and Turn Document Into Data
DocumentCloud is a web-based software platform for organizing, researching, annotating, and publishing primary source documents. They offer a set of tools that help you find and tell stories in your documents. Thanks to generous funding from the Knight Foundation, DocumentCloud since its launch in 2010 has been offered for free exclusively to journalism organizations. They are currently developing a paid model to ensure the DocumentCloud platform’s sustainability, an effort you can read more about at the DocumentCloud blog. Currently, they are offering accounts to journalists — both those within news organizations and those with a demonstrated freelance portfolio. In addition, they are opening the platform on a trial basis to users in related industries who work with public documents. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
