e-Science Scoping Survey | Arts and Humanities E-Science Support Centre

The final report for the AHRC e-Science Scoping Study is now available. This report, written by Sheila Anderson, the Principal Investigator of the e-Science Scoping Survey, provides an assessment of the opportunities available to the arts and humanities research communities by exploiting e-science tools and technologies. Material was gathered from seven expert seminars in specific disciplinary areas; the individual reports of which can be found here.

The report gives the following definition of e-Science for the arts and humanities:

“[T]he development and deployment of a networked infrastructure and culture through which resources – be they processing power, data, expertise, or person power – can be shared in a secure
environment, and in which new research questions will arise, new forms of collaboration can emerge, and new and advanced methodologies explored”

The final report can be downloaded here.

The study comprised several activities, including seven discipline specific expert seminars, each of which produced individual reports. These can be accessed here here.

In addition to these documents, a Complete summary of e-science tools by Tobias Blanke and Sanjay Vivekanandan is available, along with a summary of e-science projects and a commentary on the e-science projects and tools studied by the survey by Luke Blaxill, the project's Research Assistant.

All these documents should be read together to gain the Scoping Survey's overall perspective on Arts and Humanities e-Science. Comments on any aspect are extremely welcome, and may be sent to support@ahessc.ac.uk.
