How To Instructional Resources

VantagePoint has been used for numerous management of technology (competitive technological intelligence, technology roadmapping, technology process management, etc.) as well as science and innovation policy applications (research evaluation, social network analysis, etc.). This site is a place to share documents, videos, and other "how-to" resources for engaging text-mining in these pursuits. In the spirit of advancing the public research knowledge base, VP Institute member contributors post and share these resources in good faith. VP Institute can make no claims as to their efficacy or integrity, nor provide technical support for their use with VantagePoint.
