Digital editing– research– archiving


Open source tools and services support humanistic scholars during the entire process of research, especially in digital scholarly editing.

An online help, tutorials, mailing lists, a bug tracker and the source code enable users and developers to quickly start working with TextGrid.


TextGrid - a sustainable research environment

Thanks to generous funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) between 2006 and 2015, the Virtual Research Environment for the Humanities TextGrid was established. A sustainable operation of TextGrid is ensured even after the funding has expired, so that both the TextGrid laboratory and the TextGrid repository remain fully available. Its technological core components such as user management and repository technologies have been migrated to the digital research infrastructure DARIAH-DE - Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities to ensure a sustainable and long-term use of TextGrid's modern services. In addition, TextGrid user meetings and workshops will be continued in collaboration with DARIAH-DE. They offer the opportunity to present one's own work, to familiarize oneself with the different characteristics of both infrastructures and to network with other scientists.
