Digital Scholarship Projects

The CDS collaborates in projects with researchers and other partners from inside and outside the university on the latest technological innovations, and by doing so it builds a digital environment in which researchers can freely explore new methods and techniques, and in which they can collaborate with other researchers, potentially from other disciplines.

Mediating Islam in the Digital Age (MIDA)

The Centre for Digital Scholarship will coordinate internships and workshops within the MIDA project about Open Science, FAIR data and Scholarly Communication in the Digital Age.

 

ORCID

The ORCID-project stimulates and helps Leiden researchers to create an ORCID and to register this identifier in LUCRIS. By doing so, we increase the visibility and findability of their work.

 

 

UBL Helps with Open Access

Library staff collaborates in the project UBL Helps with Open Access with Leiden researchers to help them make their publications  Open Access.

 

Research Data Service Catalog

To guide researchers as to which services to use before, during and after their research project the Centre for Digital Scholarship has set up a Research Data Service Catalog.

You share, we take care

The Taverne  amendment is an extension of Dutch copyright law that allows you to share your publication quickly and easily. In You share, we take care the Dutch universities cooperate in their effort to help reseachers make use of this possibility.

 

Read more about our projects

15 young researchers are collaborating in the MIDA project to investigate how digitisation influences 1) the way Islam is taking shape --with regards to opinions, beliefs, practices, societies, political organisations and world views; 2) the way in which muslims relate to the past; 3) develoments in islamic research.

Additionally, the Marie Curie ITN programme offers and extensive trainnig programme to acquire knowledge and skills about digitisation and technology in order to facilitate careers within or outside academia.

The Centre for Digital Scholarship will coordinate internships and workshops within the project about Open Science, FAIR data and Scholarly Communication in the Digital Age (in cooperation with Brill). The internships deal with digital longevity of audiovisual materials and the visualisation of networks of scholars.

ORCID is a unique code that is used to identfy academic authors sustainably and persistently.

ORCID is an important tool to improve the visibility of Leiden researchers and their publications. Research funders and publishers increasingly require the use of an ORCID.  In the ORCID-project Leiden researchers are encouraged to create an ORCID and to register this identifier in LUCRIS. We aim to cover 75% of Leiden researchers. Additionally, we promote the advantages of using an ORCID and to stimulate the use of other services that have been built on ORCID.

Within the project, library staff collaborates with all research institutes to carry out a number of activities to promote a wider use of ORCID:

  • We reach out to researchers via email, when we know that they do not yet have an ORCID
  • Project staff organizes informative meetings and presentations for researchers, PhD students, and faculty staff.

Researchers may receive personal support to create an ORCID and to register the ORCID in LUCRIS.

Library staff collaborates in the project UBL Helps with Open Access with Leiden researchers to help them make their publications Open Access.

Researchers increasingly wish to and have to publish Open Access. In the project UBL helps with Open Access, library staff will assist those researchers by informing them about current policies and possibilities to publish Open Access, and by helping them to upload their publications into the Leiden Repository. By doing so, we create a sustainable and valuable archive for the publications of our researchers and we increase the visibility of our academic work.

An important goal of the project is to make Open Access publishing truly easier for our researchers. Within the project we have several activities to facilitate this:

  • Information and specific communication about Leiden University's Open Access policy.
  • Information and specific communication  about the deals that we have with publishers.
  • We aim to set up a pilot to upload all publications that have been registered in LUCRIS into the Leiden Repository.
  • An investigation into the posibility to use imported metadata about publications from databases such as Web of Science, Scopus, etc.

To guide researchers to the most suitable services to use before, during and after their research project the Centre for Digital Scholarship has set up a Research Data Service Catalog.

Researchers are required to manage their data in a FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) way according to international, national and local policies. To guide researchers as to which services to use before, during and after their research project the Centre for Digital Scholarship has set up a Research Data Service Catalog.

The catalog lists services available per faculty with additional useful metadata such as endorsement by the faculty. The catalogue is also useful for the university’s data management program because it may visualise an abundance but also a sometimes a lack of services for a specific domain or phase in the research lifecycle. The first version of this catalog has been up and running since the end of 2015. With three years’ experience of running the catalog and functioning as a golden example for the national version at the National Coordination Point Research Data Management, there is time for a new version that even better fits the needs of researchers and the university.

Important goals are to align even more with the faculties to make sure that information is up-to-date, as well as with local, national and international activities, and to give the catalog a "facelift". To reach these goals we will carry out the following activities:

  • Set up processes with the faculties to ensure that the information in the catalogue adheres to their policies
  • Set up processes with FAIRsharing.org and re3data.org to streamline updates
  • Clarify and simplify the information offered through the catalog by creating two entrance points: one for researchers and one for data managers

An extension of Dutch copyright law allows you to share your publication quickly and easily.

You share, we take care

The Dutch universities decided to start a pilot to give open access an extra boost in 2019. On the basis of the Taverne Amendment, the publishers' versions of short scientific works can be made available after six months via the university repository. Of course, this is done in cooperation and in agreement with the author’s wishes.

Taverne Amendment

The maker of a short scientific work, the research for which has been paid for in whole or in part by Dutch public funds, shall be entitled to make that work available to the public for no consideration following a reasonable period of time after the work was first published, provided that clear reference is made to the source of the first publication of the work.

Leiden University

Researchers employed by Leiden University may ask to participate in the pilot by contacting the University Library via openaccess@library.leidenuniv.nl

A staff member from the Centre for Digital Scholarship will verify the conditions and provide additional information to make the publication available in the Leiden Repository.
