Gale Artemis: the world’s largest scholarly research collection in the humanities

Gale Artemis is a groundbreaking research platform that will integrate its extensive digital humanities collections on one state-of-the-art platform, creating the world’s largest online curated primary source and reference collections. Gale Artemis will provide a seamless research experience that enables scholars to search across millions of pages of primary and secondary sources in the humanities from the 15th to the 20th centuries.

What’s in a name?

The new research experience, Artemis is named after the Greek goddess who symbolises new ideas, discovery, power and “the hunt”. Above all, Gale Artemis promotes discovery by:
  • enabling researchers the ability to challenge assumptions, create new theories, make connections and realise relationships among content that has never before been possible
  • offering  students the ideal starting point for research with tools to guide them through the material

Gale Artemis platform

Gale Artemis not only integrates full-text content with metadata and subject indexing but provides workflow tools to analyse information. Here are just a few of the ways Gale Artemis will transform the way that researchers and students work:

Subject indexing

Subject indexing aids content discovery across collections, drawing connections that simple search and retrieve cannot achieve. No other digital archives publisher is subject indexing their primary source content in this way – but we at Gale believe it is worth the investment and expense.

Term Frequency

This allows users to see the frequency of their search term(s) in the content over time, which can suggest the importance of particular concepts during given periods. It allows users to ask new questions of historical data e.g. Is there a connection between “bread” and “revolution”? Does the frequency of the word ‘Empire’ coincide with the rise of the term ‘tragedy’ and ‘comedy’ in popular discourse?

Term Clusters

Users can see topics that commonly occur in relation to their search term, which helps uncover hidden connections, or can be a helpful starting point in the early stages of research, suggesting potential pathways through a topic.

The Content

Gale Artemis will unlock a rich array of primary sources, critical articles, literary and cultural analysis, and biographies. Users can search across centuries to be able to see the broader continuum of the story they want to tell. Gale Artemis will release in a series of phases and will expand over the next few years.
