About the project
The aim of the project “Workflow to develop digital publications at universities” is: to create a virtual workbench for researchers, scientists and teaching staff of the University of Wrocław, enabling independent preparation of digital publications for online presentation and teaching using source materials.
As part of the project, as a result of 6 substantive tasks, existing IT tools will be extended and integrated into a technological sequence enabling automation of publication of scientific papers and remote work on source documents.
The project provides for the creation of three e-services, including:
1. the Aggregator of Scientific Works (ADN) – a new system enabling technical and content-related inventory of data concerning digital and analogue publications requiring digitisation;
2. the Virtual Transcription Laboratory – an existing digital service launched within the framework of the “Leopoldina” project, which will be extended with new functionalities enabling handling and automation of transcription, processing and making available of scientific publications, cultural heritage objects and source materials (manuscripts, archives, etc.)
3. the Repository of the University of Wrocław – development and expansion of the existing digital service enabling publication of scientific output of University of Wrocław employees. As part of the project, this e-service will be expanded with new functionalities allowing for more effective management of scientific publications in accordance with new mandates from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, as well as communication with external aggregation systems aimed at promoting and disseminating research results. As part of the project, the UWr Repository will be integrated with the Transcription Laboratory in terms of automating the production of digital publications by UWr employees. E-services will be available through the portal “Leopoldina on-line”. The main scope of ISP processed as a result of the project will include scientific publications and source texts from the fields of broadly understood humanities and history.
