Contribute data

Do you have data that could be relevant to GLOBALISE?

We collect data on a range of subjects to improve our Named Entity Recognition (NER) models and to contextualize entities (such as persons, places, commodities and ships) and events (such as voyages, wars, instances of resistance) mentioned in the sources. Relevant data sets could be lists of inhabitants of a certain region, data on natural disasters and their occurrences, or on diplomatic correspondences, to mention only a few examples.

Data contributions to GLOBALISE are stored in the project Dataverse. This way, you ensure sustainable storage of your data. Additionally, your data might become more accessible and (re)usable as a result of our curation and linkage with other data sets. All relevant data is securely handled and incorporated into the GLOBALISE data corpus and if we use data for NER development or historical contextualization, we clearly document this in our GitHub.

Data contributors may also choose to become part of our pool of (historical) data experts and / or join the project as guest researcher after consultation.

Please do not hesitate to drop Merve Tosun a line at with your questions or to discuss the terms of your data deposit.
