Project description

The DSDD-database will be made openly available via a user-friendly Virtual Research Environment including (a) concept-alignment tools to create the aggregated lemmas (b) an API (application programming interface) to enable data export for use with analytical research tools (e.g. for geo-visualisation, quantitative lexicology and dialectometry) and (c) a collaborative bibliography.

 The added-value of the DSDD for digital scholarship will be demonstrated with 2-3 research use cases, selected by the Project Advisory Board, based on their current research, coordinated by the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities.

 The sustainability of the DSDD-database will be ensured by the data management plan. The creation of the infrastructure will be managed in three phases: (1) Design and Preparation (2) Implementation and (3) Exploitation.
