Arts eResearch seeks to change the culture of research and push the boundaries of what is possible in eResearch through supporting and partnering researchers and students
Enhancing scholarship and collaboration by connecting people, ideas and innovative digital solutions Arts eResearch assists staff and graduate students in incorporating digital methods at all stages of their research and teaching projects, from initial scoping and grant-writing through information collection, management, analysis and visualisation, to the design of sustainable web sites and the archiving of research materials in the Sydney eScholarship repository. We combine domain knowledge in the Humanities with the technical expertise required to develop software tools and integration at all levels. The unit can help develop data models, break down project requirements into components, integrate existing tools (mainly free and open source) to support project needs, develop strategies and workflows for data collection and develop new tools where needed.
Arts eResearch (established 2011) developed out of the Archaeological Computing Laboratory (established 1992) via the Digital Innovation Unit - a Humanities eResearch collaboration with PARADISEC and Sydney eScholarship between 2007 and 2010.
