OPERAS Consortium (Open Scholarly Communication in the European Research Area for Social Sciences and Humanities)
Since 2017 IBL PAN has been one of the eight core members of the OPERAS consortium. OPERAS supports open scholarly communication in the social sciences and humanities (SSH) in the European Research Area. Its mission is to coordinate and federate resources in Europe to efficiently address the needs of European researchers in the field. In 2021 OPERAS consortium was registered as one of the 11 infrastructural projects in the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap.
The Digital Humanities Centre has been directly involved in the OPERAS collaborative projects, such as OPERAS-P and TRIPLE. In June 2021 the Centre launched a national node for supporting OPERAS actions in Poland - OPERAS-PL. The aim of the initiative is to develop open scholarly communication and disseminate OPERAS services in the Polish SSH community.
CHC collaborates with other members of the OPERAS consortium via special interest groups (SIG) - special teams set up for working on a given subject or problem. There are five SIGs:
Advocacy Special Interest Group,
OA Business Models Special Interest Group
Common Standards Special Interest Group
Multilingualism Special Interest Group
Tools Special Interest Group
As part of the OPERAS consortium, CHC collaborates with Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in developing OpenEdition
, a comprehensive digital infrastructure for academic communication in the humanities and social sciences, which brings together four complementary platforms focused, respectively, on journals (OpenEdition Journals), book series (OpenEdition Books), research blogs (Hypotheses) and academic events (Calenda).
DARIAH-ERIC (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities)
The Digital Humanities Centre is involved in various projects of DARIAH ERIC consortium, including leading two DARIAH working groups:
Dr Tomasz Umerle is co-leading (with V. Malinek from the Institute of Czech Literature at the Czech Academy of Sciences) the DARIAH ERIC Bibliographical Data Working Group,
Marta Błaszczyńska is co-leading (with Erzsébet Tóth-Czifra from DARIAH EU) the DARIAH-EU Research Data Management Working Group.
The Digital Humanities Centre is also an active member of the national DARIAH node (DARIAH-PL) which has recently obtained a large grant for the development of the Polish node of DARIAH-EU.
The Digital Humanities Centre is actively engaged in the E-Humanities Working Group of European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities (ALLEA). Since November 2020 Dr Maciej Maryl has been a leader of the Working Group and Marta Błaszczyńska has been in charge of its coordination. The thematic scope of the WG covers digital humanities and its place in academia, evaluation of digital publications and innovative scholarly communication.
CLARIN-ERIC (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure)
In 2019-2021 Dr Maciej Maryl was CLARIN infrastructure ambassador.
Prof. Marek Troszyński collaborates with CLARIN-PL on the development of the Polish platform Corpus Czterech Wieszczów, a project whose aim is to create a modern resource containing the full works of four national poets: Adam Mickiewicz, Juliusz Słowacki, Zygmunt Krasiński and Cyprian Norwid.
