LINHD presenta un poster de EVILINHD en el «2nd Dixit convention»

El equipo de LINHD se traslada a Colonia, del 14 al 18 de marzo del 2016, para presentar en la segunda edición de “Dixit convention” el entorno virtual EVI. En esta ocasión los responsables de presentar el proyecto son Clara Martínez Cantón y Álvaro del Olmo.



En el simposio se discutirá la relación entre la edición digital académica y las interfaces, reuniendo a expertos en edición digital, diseño de interfaces, editores, usuarios, diseñadores web y desarrolladores. En este contexto se presentará el póster realizado por:

Juan José Escribano / Elena González-Blanco / Clara Martínez / Gimena del Rio | «EVI-LINHD, a Virtual Research Environment for Digital Scholarly Editing»

He aquí el abstract del póster presentado:

Virtual Research Environments (VREs) have become central objects for the digital humanist’s community, as they help global, interdisciplinary and networked research taking profit of the changes in “data production, curation and (re‐)use, by new scientific methods, by changes in technology supply” (Voss and Procter, 2009: 174-190). DH Centers, labs or less formal structures such as associations benefit from many kinds of VREs, which facilitate researchers and users by providing a place to develop, store, share and preserve their work, thus making it more visible. The implementation of each of these VREs is different, as Carusi and Reimer claim (2010), but there are some common guidelines and standards generally shared (as an example, see the Centernet map and guidelines of TGIR Huma-Num 2015).


This poster presents the structure and design of the VRE of LINHD, the Digital Innovation Lab at UNED (, and the first Digital Humanities Center in Spain. It focuses on the possibilities of a collaborative environment for (profane or advanced) Spanish-speakers scholarly digital editors. Taking into account the language barrier that English may suppose for a Spanish-speakers scholar or student and the distance they may encounter with the data and organization of the interface (in terms of computational knowledge) while working with a scholarly digital edition or collection, LINHD’s VRE comes as a solution for the virtual research community interested in scholarly digital work.

In this sense, our project dialogues and aims to join the landscape of other VREs devoted to digital edition, such as Textgrid, e-laborate, etc. and, in a further stage, to build a complete virtual environment to collect and classify data, tools and projects, work and publish them and share the results. Therefore, the key of our VRE is the combination of different open-source software that will enable users to complete the whole process of developing a digital editorial project. The environment is up to now divided into three parts: 1) A repository of data to (projects, tools, etc.) with permanent identifiers in which the information will be indexed through a semantic structured ontology of metadata and controlled vocabularies, using the software of LINDAT-Clarin and complementing it with digital humanities metadata. 2) A working space based on the possibilities of eXistDB to work on text encoding, storing and querying, Omeka and WordPress, plus some publishing tools (pre-defined stylesheets and some other open-source projects, such as Sade, Versioning machine, etc.). 3) A collaborative cloud workspace which integrates a wiki, a file archiving system and a publishing space for each team with a unified login system.
