In order to meet the emerging needs of e-Researchers, the DART project proposes a comprehensive
end-to end approach to developing a new system for managing research activity and publication.
The DART project will undertake a co-ordinated programme of
eResearch requirements analysis, software development, policy and
guideline creation and prototyping to investigate how best
collect, capture and retain large data sets and streams
from a range of different sources;
deal with the infrastructural issues of scale,
sustainability and interoperability between repositories;
assist researchers in dealing with intellectual property
issues during the research process;
support deposit into, access to, and annotation by a range
of actors, to a set of digital libraries which include
publications, datasets, simulations, software and dynamic
adopt next-generation methods for research publication,
dissemination and access.
