It was already four years ago when I created my Newsmap. It is time to update the whole system: fully rewritten in Python and developing a new classification algorithm. This is why I generated a 5,000 human-coded international news stories using the Prolific Academic.
Thanks to the crowed-sourcing services, recruiting is no longer a problem, but we still have to provide coding instruction, and it has to be very clear and simple. The coding rules for my research is even-oriented, and international news stories were coding according to the location of the events or problems concerned.
