About CWRD

The Computers and Writing Research Database (CWRD) is the first database of scholarly material in the field of computers and writing, a subfield of rhetoric and writing studies. The CWRD is intended to be a unique and valuable resource that will enable a range of innovative scholarly explorations, both within the Ohio State community as well as scholars worldwide. 

By compiling an extensive archive of sources in the field of computers and writing, the CWRD intends to encourage writing scholars and other humanists to incorporate the sciences that utilize bibliometric methods for interpreting large data sources. The CWRD aims to provide accessible bibliometric data of research in the field, thus allowing the community to be able to apply new and existing methods of statistical analysis to our own research, and providing access to a wealth of important information regarding the beginnings of the field.
