Vertaalde titel van de bijdrageCrime wave detectie in online news
News media organizations generate massive amounts of articles online. This offers new possibilities for researchers to collect and research these large amounts of text. One of these advantages is that we can detect patterns, such as crime waves, in text corpora. In this paper we illustrate how our framework can collect news articles, organise these according to the main topics covered, and how we can use visualization techniques to detect three types of crime waves: the ‘one time attention grabbers’, the ‘limited range hypes’ and the ‘persistent effect hypes’. The framework was tested on the crime related news of TheGuardian.co.uk. We were able to detect all three types of crime waves through this method.
