Nodegoat: Infrastructure for Open Research Data (ORD)
Nodegoat, a virtual research environment for data management, analysis and visualization, is also a digital infrastructure for the humanities used by educational institutions worldwide. Unlike a single installation, Nodegoat GO is a multi-user faculty installation running at the Digital Humanities of the University of Bern: https://www.dh.unibe.ch/dienstleistungen/nodegoat_go/index_ger.html. All faculty members have their own Nodegaot research environment at their disposal. As Nodegoat is used in research worldwide, synergies automatically arise and international exchange and collaboration of research projects becomes more effective. After initial workshops on the nodegoat research environment at the university of Bern (Host: WBKolleg) 2019 and 2020, Dr. Kaspar Gubler launched the Nodegoat GO as part of the digitization strategy of the University of Bern. With this virtual research environment at Phil.-hist. Faculty, 50 projects with about 150 users are already working with Nodegoat GO. The projects come from the departments of history, archaeology, musicology, theater studies and linguistics.

With this form you can request your personal nodegoat research environment. You will receive the login data for your administration account by e-mail. As administrator you can create projects and manage users in your research environment. For example, you can create a main project, a test project and a project for data exchange, or as a lecturer you can create a main project and sub-projects for students who are allowed to use selected content from the main project.
Note: Your research environment is located on a ‘faculty installation’ (= nodegoat Go) of phil.-hist. Faculty of the University of Bern. All projects are professionally maintained on the nodegoat Go server. You do not have to worry about the technical operation of your research environment and can concentrate on the implementation of your projects. If you have any questions you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
