Reinventing research: findings  Traditional view of humanities research is outmoded  Researchers are working with new tools and technologies – But use them to fit their research, not the other way round

 They are collaborating in teams BUT  Limited use of blogs and social media – Doubts about quality – Concern about how to engage with general user

 Low take-up of digital humanities to date – Limited use of semantic web, text mining, grid or cloud computing

 Barrier to use – Lack of awareness – Lack of training and support – Lack of standardisation across resources viernes 22 de abril de 2011


Reinventing research: policy  Know your user

– Sensitivity to practice and cultures of different research communities – Training needed from specialists in researcher’s domain

 Infrastructures

– Reassurance needed that research infrastructures will be maintained and developed

 Digital humanities
