** UPDATE: The Master Dictionary and Sentiment classifications have been updated to include data through 2020. We've made a number of significant changes in the current revision.
The Notre Dame Software Repository for Accounting and Finance (SRAF) is a website designed to provide a central repository for programs and data used in accounting and finance research. SRAF is currently in the initial stages of development and we will be posting more programs and data as the site evolves.
The site was initially proposed in my paper with Tim Loughran, "Textual Analysis in Accounting and Finance: A Survey" (SSRN, Journal of Accounting Research, 54:4, September 2016, 1187-1230). Although the focus of the site is textual analysis, we also will attempt to catalog any other software and data relevant to the profession.
If you would like to contribute to the site, make suggestions, tune regexes, or are interested in receiving update notifications, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All software and data are provided on an "as is" basis, without warranties, for non-commercial purposes. The software is free for academic researchers. Please contact us for commercial licensing applications.
