"To develop a novel and innovative method for automatically augmenting existing metadata sets to support interdisciplinary research in the social sciences and humanities"
Digging into Metadata (IMSL/JISC/AHRC/ESRC Digging into Data Challenge: 2012-2014). The project was one of the winners of the 2011 Digging into Data Challenge, a competition to promote innovative humanities and social science research using large-scale data analysis.
The project is a collaboration between the University of South Wales and the MIMAS Data Centre based at The University of Manchester, together with the University of Drexel in Philadelphia.
This competition is jointly funded by eight funding agencies from Canada, Netherlands, United Kingdom (JISC, AHRC and ESRC) and the United States. This round, 67 teams applied, and 14 were funded.
Digging into Metadata builds on outcomes from the previous JISC funded PERTAINS project. Doug Tudhope is PI and Ceri Binding is the Research Fellow for our part of the project.
