Website of the Project: text+
The Text+ network will preserve text- and language-based research data in the long term and enable their broad use in science.
The Text+ infrastructure is focused on language and text data and initially concentrates on digital collections, lexical resources and editions. These are highly relevant to all language- and text-based disciplines, especially linguistics, literary studies, philosophy, classical philology, anthropology, non-European cultures and languages, and language- and text-based research in the social, economic, political, and historical sciences.
The Joint Science Conference has approved Text+ as a consortium of the nationwide initiative to build a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI). Text+ will officially launch in the fall of 2021 after several years of preparation and will initially be funded for five years by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
