Her research interests cover early modern literature, digital philology and history of digital humanities. She has been participating in several DH projects, such as Digital Repertoire of European Poetry, Répertoire de la poésie hongroise ancienne, Hungarian Family Database of 16–19th Century. At the moment, she is working on the catalogue of Hungarian digital scholarly editions in cooperation with the Centre for Digital Humanities (ELTE). As the managing editor of the Digitális Bölcsészet [Digital Humanities] journal, she is engaged in popularizing and connecting DH research projects, and encouraging the multilingual discourse of DH.
Presentation: Digital Scholarly Editions and Libraries
As a contributor of the Digital Humanities Centre of ELTE, I collect and process Hungarian digital scholarly editions. The digital philology community uses two “catalogues” of digital scholarly editions. One is Patrick Sahle’s annotated bibliography, which has today 420 items [http://www.digitale-edition.de/], the other is Greta Franzini’s ongoing project on GitHub [https://github.com/gfranzini/digEds_cat/]. Both of them are rather bibliographies than catalogues – my aim is to prove for both philologist and librarian communities that we should work together due to make these special electronic documents visible online and help them survive.
The main topics of the talk: are the creators concerned with sharing the data and metadata they own? Are libraries concerned with collecting and processing such electronic documents? If we do, what should we preserve (source files, interfaces, applications)? By introducing the Hungarian catalogue I made, I also point out typical questions of processing and preserving electronic documents.
|Emily Poznanski, De Gruyter
Emily Poznanski has worked in open access publishing for over 7 years. Her current role as Manager Open Access Strategy at De Gruyter focuses on the sustainable growth of open access book and journal publishing. De Gruyter is an international, independent publisher headquartered in Berlin, which has published first-class scholarship for more than 260 years.
From 2011 to 2016, she was Product Manager, Open Access Books at De Gruyter Open developing what is now the largest independent source of open access books worldwide and Assistant Product Manager at Versita working on the launch of around 100 new journals and the transition of titles from subscription to open access.
Presentation: De Gruyter – Sustainable Open Access Books
All these titles are free to read, download and share with the community at large. With open access for books, research is available without any restrictions – allowing increased visibility and accelerated discovery. Moreover, since much research is funded by public spending, open access allows taxpayers to benefit from the results of their investments.
These benefits, among others, have led us to commit to open access for books. Our OA books program has grown thanks to the fair and flexible approach we have with our authors and partners. De Gruyter has worked with various business models and numerous partners to find a sustainable and scalable approach to open access book publishing.
This workshop summarises the various approaches in place for publishing open access books and outlines the challenges going ahead.

Presentation: Serendipity by Design: Empowering Digital Scholarship in the Library
This talk reflects on the findings of a workshop, ‘Enabling Digital Scholarship’ (December 2017, Wolfson College, Oxford), which described digital scholarship in this way. It situates these reflections in the library context, and discusses the opportunities and challenges of collaborating to amplify existing research, enable and catalyze new multidisciplinary work, and to bring new readers, people and machines, into the library.

Presentation: Research Data Management: Challenges and Opportunities
In this talk, I will zoom in the current data sharing practices in Eastern Europe and demonstrate how the adoption of research data sharing tools can be improved.
I will then discuss a suite of tools and services developed to assist researchers and institutions in their data management needs, covering the entire spectrum which starts with data preservation and ends with making data comprehensible and trusted, hence enabling researchers to get a proper recognition and institutions to improve their overall ranking by going “beyond the mandates”.
And, finally, I will share some examples of how universities have being already using this suite.
