Many thanks.

My students and I are working on an analysis of Yelp reviews of restaurants in a New York City neighborhood.  Though we have found analyses of the effects of Yelp reviews on restaurants' business success, we have not found any research on the text of these reviews, on the aggregate of Yelp restaurant reviewers, or on the relation between restaurant reviews and urban locations.

If you know of any research on these issues, could you please let us know?
