MédiHAL Humanities Researchers and Digital Technologies: Building Infrastructures for a New Age 2. November 2011 09:33 New report from the European Science Foundation assesses Research Infrastructures in Humanities research Europe's leading scientists have pledged to embrace and expand the role of technology in the Humanities. According to Professor Claudine Moulin, lead scientist and Chair of the ESF Science Policy Briefing editorial group: "Making our cultural heritage accessible in digital form, and interlinking it sensitively with other resources, opens a new frontier for Humanities research for addressing grand challenges in the Humanities themselves, and at the interface with other research domains." The report argues that while there are many sophisticated RIs in other domains of science that can inform and further Humanities research, ultimately, it is also necessary for Humanities scholars to build and have access to 'fit for purpose' Humanities RIs, given the nature of their data sets, research methods and working practices. -end- Notes to editors
SavoirsCom1 SHARE is a higher education initiative whose mission is to maximize research impact by making research widely accessible, discoverable, and reusable SHARE is a higher education initiative whose mission is to maximize research impact by making a comprehensive inventory of research widely accessible, discoverable, and reusable. To fulfill this mission SHARE is building a free, open data set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle. By collecting, connecting, and enhancing metadata that describes research activities and outputs—from data management plans and grant proposals to preprints, journal articles, and data repository deposits—SHARE will simplify how various pieces can be identified as elements of a research project. By creating an open data set, SHARE will facilitate innovation in communication, visualization, and dissemination of information about research for the advancement of scholarship. Much of that innovation cannot be predicted in advance, and would be impossible without SHARE. Values SHARE values openness and transparency. SHARE values international interoperability.
