Working Group 5: Mediating Research Through Technology
Working Group Chairs: Jennifer Edmond and Lars Wieneke
This Working Group will facilitate the knowledge transfer of the advances in digital research environments for the specific needs of the Actionâ€™s participants. It will include both researchers with experience in applying digital humanities methodologies and tools and IT professionals.Â Together they will map the technologies applicable to various stages of a research project (data capture, processing, exploration and presentation) against the specificity of the digital tools, sources and collection policies, as well as issues of ethics and privacy.
Their findings will be consulted with other WGs to ensure their validity. The review will inform Joint Review Report which will describe both the state of the art and possibilities for providing new services to researchers. Based on the review, trainings (STSMs and training schools) will be organized to enable a hands-on experience of working with selected digital initiatives most suiting their needs.
