Dear colleagues, We are proud to announce brat v1.3 (Crunchy Frog), an open-source (MIT), browser-based tool for text annotation. The tool is available from: http://brat.nlplab.org/ And examples of past and potential usages presented at: http://brat.nlplab.org/examples.html brat is a general-purpose tool for the visualisation and creation of annotations for tasks such as entity mention annotation, relation and event annotation, dependency syntactic annotation, and others. The new version introduces many new features to the tool, including: * entity normalisation / linking / grounding support http://brat.nlplab.org/normalization.html * supporting embedded visualisations for web pages and web-based applications http://brat.nlplab.org/embed.html * discontinuous text annotations * in-built annotation tutorials and additional example corpora * new annotation comparison functionality * a fast, easy-to-use standalone server (experimental) For details, please see: http://brat.nlplab.org/new-in-v1.3.html If you want to upgrade an existing installation, please see: http://brat.nlplab.org/upgrading-to-v1.3.html brat is developed as a collaborative effort between several research groups as an open source and open development project, and we warmly welcome contributions and participation from the community. Possible contributions are not limited to code, but also include feature requests, bug reports and more. Since its initial release, brat has been adopted for use in corpus annotation and other tasks by various groups. We hope this new version will be as well received as the initial release of the tool, and will gladly answer questions and welcome any feedback.
