CLS INFRA D3.1 Baseline Methodological User Needs Analysis

  • 1. University of Trier


The findings reported here have been obtained in the framework of CLS INFRA’s Work Package 3 concerned with “Methodological Considerations of Computational Literary Studies” (WP3). The overarching objective of WP3 is to identify, document and show-case current shared practices in CLS research. This objective supports several purposes, among them guiding infrastructure development, defining training opportunities, and consolidating the CLS community. Specifically, one can deduct infrastructure requirements from such findings and feed them to other work packages within the project, in order to ensure that decisions taken when designing a research infrastructure for the CLS community are informed by these requirements.1 Also, such a documentation of current shared practices can help design a useful training programme both for scholars who are newly entering the field and for more experienced researchers. In addition, it can help consolidate the CLS community by making shared research practices visible. Within WP3, the first step to identify, document and show-case best practices in CLS research is to capture the current state of the art in terms of widespread research practices in CLS. Task 3.1 on the “Baseline Methodological User Needs Analysis” is devoted to this aim.
