Science Policy Briefing (SPB) on “Research Infrastructures in the Digital Humanities"

The Standing Committee for the Humanities of the European Science Foundation has the pleasure to announce the recent publication of a Science Policy Briefing (SPB) on “Research Infrastructures in the Digital Humanities”.

The briefing argues that without Research Infrastructures (RIs) such as archives, libraries, academies, museums and galleries, significant strands of Humanities research would not be possible. By drawing on a number of case studies, it also demonstrates that digital RIs offer Humanities scholars new and productive ways to explore old questions and develop new ones. The report focuses on developing a common strategy on RIs in the Humanities at a European level and identifies seven key areas of priorities and future research directions aimed at researchers and information professionals, as well as the institutions which make decisions of importance to them, such as funding bodies, those responsible for management and administration of research organisations and RIs, selection and promotion committees.
