Text+ focuses on text- and language-based research data with a special emphasis on Digital Collections, Editions and Lexical Resources (incl. dictionaries). The three types of research data are crucial for a wide range of humanities disciplines, including, but not limited to, linguistics, literary studies, philosophy, classical philology, anthropology, non-European cultures and languages as well as language and text-based research in social, political and historical sciences.
The humanities community in all its diversity is the most important reference point for Text+ and we represent it through your commitment. Therefore, we invited you to participate in and contribute to the NFDI (User Stories, Data from the Community). The “plus” in Text+ stands for our participatory approach and our claim to offer services for text- and language-based disciplines.
The Text+ consortium is currently in the application phase for DFG funding as part of the nationwide initiative to establish a national research data infrastructure (NFDI). Further information on the call, its structure and background can be found on the DFG’s NFDI website.
