Jena Organization Corpus (JOCo)

JOCo is a corpus of annual reports (ARs) and corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports  of US American, British and German business organizations, i.e. corporations, which are listed in the main indices such as DOW JONES, S&P 500, and NASDAQ 100 for the USA; FTSE, FTSE AIM 100, FTSE 250 for Great Britain; DAX, MDAX, and TecDAX for Germany. All reports are in English: the German corporations provide reports in English for their international audiences as well. For a more detailed description of the corpus please refer to our paper:
