Digital humanities practice in Australian literary studies: data development, structural enhancement and open access innovation - Austlit phase 4 (2011–2012)

Abstract:
AustLit is a central element of Australian humanities research infrastructure and internationally recognised in a broad range of fields within literary, narrative and print culture studies. The aim of the proposed infrastructure development is to build AustLit's comprehensiveness through its research communities (in 2011: periodical publication, popular fiction, American editions, Indigenous cultures, languages other than English) and undertake a fundamental restructure of AustLit's underlying technical architecture to facilitate implementation of Open Access and Open Scholarship principles. This will enable AustLit to expand its leadership in digital humanties and allow much wider participation in data interrogation and content creation.
