COST Action A32

Open Scholarly Communities on the Web

Start date


End date


The overall aim of the Action is to create a research and publication infrastructure on the Web and an advanced e-learning system for the humanities. The research infrastructure enables a de-localized community of specialists to work in a cooperative and cumulative manner and to publish the results of their work on the Internet. The e-learning system unites research and education, and envisages not only knowledge transfer, but also the development and enhancement of critical thinking skills and of autonomous production of scientific contributions among graduate students and young researchers.
