Researchers at universities and research institutions in the Netherlands recently gained experience with enhancing publications during six projects financed by SURFfoundation. One of the projects was prepared by four members of the eHumanities Group: Nick Jankowski, Andrea Scharnhorst, Clifford Tatum and Zuotian Tatum. A video describes this and the other five SURF projects, Enhanced Publications: from experiment to practice
Five disciplines are represented in the projects:
- Economics: Open Data and Publications
- Linguistics: Lenguas de Bolivia and Enhanced NIAS Publications
- Musicology: The Other Josquin
- Communication sciences: Enhancing Scholarly Publishing in the Humanities and Social Sciences
- Geosciences: VPcross.
Jankowski is enthusiastic about the possibilities opened up by enhanced publications: “They provide the opportunity for new insights, new knowledge, and for sharing the knowledge with other scholars and a wider public.” The four eHumanities Group researchers prepared a paper about the project for the Public Knowledge Project conference 2011 held in Berlin in late September.
