  • What we need to do 
    • High priority: Images 
      • From Jeremy: "It might also be nice to task a student with spending a little while picking up some image assets for the site -- such as creative commons / copyleft / public domain photographs of stacks and piles of newspapers / magazines, up-close shots of newsprint pages, images of web browsers / mobile devices with news articles loaded on them, relevant clip art that illustrates concepts in the space, etc."

3. Magazine rankings








  • Annie will find images we can use on our public site and upload them (and a document with source links) to our shared Google drive folder.
    • Lindsay will continue working on language for the public site and populating pages. 
  • Samina and Tarika will begin work on the magazine ranking data sheet:
    • Samina will collate results from the News Canon Results sheet and input this information into the Impact Factor/Combined Newspaper Rankings sheet.
    • Tarika will collate these results against circulation ranking lists (links in Ryver) and add any other publications that have been missed to the Impact Factor/Combined Newspaper Rankings sheet.
    • Tarika will create a new, shared spreadsheet in our Google drive folder containing the titles of all of the magazine publications listed in the various circulation ranking lists Sage has given us links to.
  • Samina and Annie will also start assisting Tarika when/if they are able. 
  • Lindsay will create a shared spreadsheet of candidate sources for inclusion in the WE1S corpus (here that is: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WSTkC-KOS0r0fr-ehVWEF2i6rhxrE8rTvhd87iBvnI4/edit#gid=0)
    • We will start adding potential titles for inclusion on this list as time allows.
