This year the Leipzig Research Centre Global Dynamics (ReCentGlobe) has set up a nodegoat Grow installation to service two multi-year research projects. The project 'Die Produktion von Weltwissen im Umbruch' uses nodegoat to analyse the globalisation of knowledge production by mapping the development of Area Studies and Global Studies in the German context over the past 15 years. The project 'African non-military conflict intervention practices' uses nodegoat to build a comprehensive database of non-military interventions since 2004 by the African Union and by Regional Economic Communities.
As a result of this collaboration, the ReCentGlobe initiative organises a public nodegoat workshop within the framework of the Digital Lab infrastructure. The workshop will take place at the ReCentGlobe institute on 25 July 2023. More information about the programme and registration can be found here.
The TIC-Collaborative project of Ghent University and Maastricht University has published a dataset on international social reform congresses and organisations (1846-1914). This dataset has been created and maintained in a nodegoat installation at Ghent University since early 2014.
The data has been published as CSV files in the 'IISH Data Collection' repository and can be downloaded here. The dataset contains 1206 organisations, 1052 publications, 23247 people, 1690 conferences, and 35609 conferences attendance statements. All these statements have been enriched with spatial-temporal attributes which allows for the diachronic and geographic analysis and exploration of the relational data.[....]
The MapModern project at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) which focuses on cross-border literary networks and cultural mediators in the hispanic world between 1908 and 1939, has recently published a dataset on translations and reviews in hispanic modernist journals. This dataset has been created in their nodegoat database and currently includes all translations or reviews from La Revista (Barcelona) from 1915 to 1936; the second period of Proa (Buenos Aires) from 1924 to 1926, and Sur (Buenos Aires) from 1931 to 1939. More data from Iberoamerican journals will be added in the future.
Laura Fólica and Ventsislav Ikoff have collected the data, Diana Roig Sanz is the PI of this project. With the help of the staff of the UOC library, the dataset has been made Dublin Core compliant. The dataset can be downloaded from the data repository of the UOC: http://hdl.handle.net/10609/86485, or from the EUDAT Collaborative Data Infrastructure which has assigned the dataset with a DOI: 10.23728/b2share.eb5c468d3dc3401c8b2fb4605d868a00. The suggested citation is: Translations and Reviews in Iberoamerican Modernist Periodicals (dataset) by Fólica, Laura; Ikoff, Ventsislav; Roig Sanz, Diana; Dec 12, 2018.[....]
Since nodegoat's conception in 2011 by LAB1100, in collaboration with Joep Leerssen of the University of Amsterdam, our web-based research environment is used in various configurations by individual scholars as well as by large scale collaborative research projects.
The first project that started to use nodegoat was the Study Platform on Interlocking Nationalisms for their Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe in 2011. Since then it has been used by over twenty institutional projects and we have provided over a thousand individual scholars with access to a free personal research environment on nodegoat.net. The institutional projects are hosted on a server of the institute, and are offered in combination with training, workshops, and support. The individual accounts are hosted on our own server, located in The Hague, The Netherlands.
Due to the flexibility of nodegoat, it can be used for a wide range of different kinds of research projects. This means that there is rarely only one project at a university or research institute that wants to use nodegoat as their primary tool of research. To be able to facilitate these multi-project configurations, we have been offering various installation packages and service level agreements in the past years. To streamline our services we have formalised these packages in three different nodegoat products: nodegoat One, nodegoat Grow, and nodegoat Go.
nodegoat One is suitable for institutes that want to run a single nodegoat project. nodegoat Grow is suitable for institutes that want to run a specific amount of nodegoat projects that each have their own database. nodegoat Go is suitable for institutes that want to offer any amount of nodegoat research environments to their staff and students.[....]
