Need for Macroscopes:
-As community service
(for students, newcomers)
-As observatory for science policy
Forming a community – providing information services
DH course registry – Stef Scagliola
Emerged from a local (Dutch) initiative – DARIAH community driven
https://dh-registry.de.dariah.eu/ 160 courses/tagged,
Where can I study? What do teach others?
Forming a community – providing information services
DH project registry – a pilot
Pilot for a proposal to CLARIAH, temporarily hosted by CEDAR (eHumanities)
http://www.dh-projectregistry.org/projects BETA
Demo
- Sort by name
- Sort by start date
- No search function yet, but a lot of fields at display already
- Tagging with TaDiRAH – partly
Trajectory to the Pilot I
- Stef/Barbara – identified projects, contacted researchers,
Google Form, Spreadsheet, 95 projects
- Queries in NARCIS – www.narcis.nl
- All projects for staff with an expertise
combination of CS+H 320projects
- ‘eHumanities’, ‘computational hum..’, ‘digital hum…’ +
manual ~30 projects
- Selected 152 projects for exporting information from NARCIS,
use as much as possible Persistent identifiers!
- Added remaining projects from ‘Barbara’s list’ – 211 projects
in the pilot database
Trajectory to the Pilot II
• Building a database
scheme (Hendrik+)
• Mapping to
NOD/NARCIS
• Start of
cleaning/tagging
(Barbara)
• Moving to webserver
• First demo interface
• Project Baseline
Statistics and
Visualization (Almila)

Future ideas:
-Roles of institutions
-Temporal evolution
Could - Should
• Harvest more projects
(NARCIS, NWO, CORDIS,
DiD, …) Seed+Expand,
LOD
• Tagging projects
according to TaDiRAH
• Search interfaces (visual
enhanced)
• Funding-project-study
• Curate the projects in
the pilot – entity
disambiguation
• Find a permanent home
• Organize update
• Organize curation

Why do we need a DH project registry (Benelux, EU, …)?
What do you think could be the function of such a registry?
If so, what information you would like to be able to search for?
Would you like to be able to curate your own project information?
Andrea.scharnhorst@dans.knaw.nl
Why do we need a DH project registry (Benelux, EU, …)?
- useful for a field in the making;
- Project information is too much scattered
What do you think could be the function of such a registry?
- inform about past present projects to avoid redundancy
- find experts and possible collaborators
- get inspired
- information source for students
- support science policy about future funding
If so, what information you would like to be able to search for?
- project names, categories, persons, institutions, time,
funding institutions
Would you like to be able to curate your own project information?
- yes, but I would prefer to have as much information as
possible prefilled for me
Discussion

setting up of the pilot and NARCIS-DANS-KNAW for providing input.

Need for Macroscopes: -As community service (for students, newcomers) -As observatory for science policy
  • 7. Forming a community – providing information services DH course registry – Stef Scagliola Emerged from a local (Dutch) initiative – DARIAH community driven https://dh-registry.de.dariah.eu/ 160 courses/tagged, Where can I study? What do teach others?
  • 8. Forming a community – providing information services DH project registry – a pilot Pilot for a proposal to CLARIAH, temporarily hosted by CEDAR (eHumanities) http://www.dh-projectregistry.org/projects BETA
  • 9. Demo - Sort by name - Sort by start date - No search function yet, but a lot of fields at display already - Tagging with TaDiRAH – partly
  • 10. Trajectory to the Pilot I - Stef/Barbara – identified projects, contacted researchers, Google Form, Spreadsheet, 95 projects - Queries in NARCIS – www.narcis.nl - All projects for staff with an expertise combination of CS+H 320projects - ‘eHumanities’, ‘computational hum..’, ‘digital hum…’ + manual ~30 projects - Selected 152 projects for exporting information from NARCIS, use as much as possible Persistent identifiers! - Added remaining projects from ‘Barbara’s list’ – 211 projects in the pilot database
  • 11. Trajectory to the Pilot II • Building a database scheme (Hendrik+) • Mapping to NOD/NARCIS • Start of cleaning/tagging (Barbara) • Moving to webserver • First demo interface • Project Baseline Statistics and Visualization (Almila) Kijkje achter de schermen Visual analytics
  • 12. Kijkje achter de schermen
  • 13. Visual analytics 1995 2004 Meertens KNAW 2015 2019 Leiden University, LUCAS Future ideas: add funding
  • 14. Visual analytics Future ideas: -Roles of institutions -Temporal evolution
  • 15. Could - Should • Harvest more projects (NARCIS, NWO, CORDIS, DiD, …) Seed+Expand, LOD • Tagging projects according to TaDiRAH • Search interfaces (visual enhanced) • Funding-project-study • Curate the projects in the pilot – entity disambiguation • Find a permanent home • Organize update • Organize curation
  • 16. Feedback http://dh-projectregistry.org/projects Name/Institution/mail address Why do we need a DH project registry (Benelux, EU, …)? What do you think could be the function of such a registry? If so, what information you would like to be able to search for? Would you like to be able to curate your own project information? Andrea.scharnhorst@dans.knaw.nl
  • 17. Why do we need a DH project registry (Benelux, EU, …)? - useful for a field in the making; - Project information is too much scattered What do you think could be the function of such a registry? - inform about past present projects to avoid redundancy - find experts and possible collaborators - get inspired - information source for students - support science policy about future funding If so, what information you would like to be able to search for? - project names, categories, persons, institutions, time, funding institutions Would you like to be able to curate your own project information? - yes, but I would prefer to have as much information as possible prefilled for me Discussion
