In the global endeavor to make data accessible to all for free, this page contains data sets that we have collected or created over time.
All 30,000+ abstracts and publication details used in the forum article "A text mining analysis of the climate change literature in industrial ecology" to analyze the literature for the Special Issue on Industrial Ecology for Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology. All abstracts were analyzed using the LiTCoF (Literature Topic Co-occurrence and Frequency) tool developed for that purpose that can be downloaded freely here.
