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.

DART overview Collect Data Analyse Data Manage Data Manage Information Collaborate and Annotate Discover Information Publish Information

Project goals:

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 to:

  • 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 knowledge representations;
  • adopt next-generation methods for research publication, dissemination and access.
