Largely grounded on still on-going empirical research on scholarly practices undertaken in several DARIAH-related projects including Preparing DARIAH, DARIAH-GR, and EHRI, the NeDiMAH Methods Ontology (NeMO) emerged as a collaboration between NeDiMAH and the Digital Curation Unit, ATHENA R.C., partner and task co-chair in DARIAH VCC2.
NeMO has undertaken the development of a comprehensive model incorporating existing relevant taxonomies of scholarly methods and tools: TaDIRAH, Oxford ICT, DHCommons, CCC-IULA-UPF and DiRT have been reviewed and a mapping of the concepts defined therein onto NEMO concepts has been produced. The outcome of the project (due 2015) will be a formal ontology:  an explicit specification of a conceptualization in the domain of scholarly research and their context of scholarly use, providing a shared vocabulary, i.e. the type of objects and/or concepts, and their properties and relations, which can be used to adequately represent the domain of arts and humanities scholarly practice in the digital age.
In this proposed workshop, we would like to introduce and discuss the outcomes of this collaborative work with the interested DARIAH partners and explore ways to take it forward after the NeDiMAH initiative has been completed.
