Concluded Digital Scholarship projects
Some examples of our concluded projects involving the use of new digital methods en techniques.
Mediating Islam in the Digital Age
15 young researchers collaborated 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.
The Centre for Digital Scholarship coordinated internships and workshops within the project about Open Science, FAIR data and Scholarly Communication in the Digital Age (in cooperation with Brill). The internships dealt with digital longevity of audiovisual materials and the visualisation of networks of scholars.
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 were encouraged to create an ORCID and to register this identifier in LUCRIS. We reached our goal to cover 75% of Leiden researchers.
You share, we take care
The Dutch Universities started a pilot to give open access an extra boost in 2019. On the basis of the Taverne Amendment, the publishers' versions of short academic works can be made available after six months via the university repository. Of course, this was done in cooperation and in agreement with the author’s wishes.
The You share, we take care project led to an adjustment of the Leiden University Open Access policy, which now implements 'Taverne' within the whole University.
