BeschreibungThis handbook sets out the processes and products of 'digital' research. It is a theoretical and practical guide on how to undertake and navigate advanced research in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
Topics covered include:
- how to make research more accessible
- the use of search engines and other sources to determine the scope of work
- research training for students
- what will theses, dissertations and research reports look like in ten years' time?
- the storing and archiving of such research
- ethics and methodologies in the field
- intercultural issues
The editors focus on advances in arts and practice-based doctorates, and their application in other fields and disciplines. The contributions chart new territory for universities, research project directors, supervisors and research students regarding the nature and format of Masters and doctoral work, as well as research projects.
This handbook is an essential reference for researchers, supervisors and administrators on how to conduct and evaluate research projects in a digital and multimodal age.

Pressestimmen'This handbook marks a major turning point in the production of dissertation and theses. Scholarly communication has been changing rapidly, embracing the latest in web searching, social media, and online and open access journals. Yet, attention to the dissertation - the hallmark of an academic education - has been sorely missing. This handbook identifies and explores the multiple ways in which electronic means are becoming an integral part of the production of dissertations today, as well as looking at the scope in the future scope for bringing electronic and new media forms into the final form of the dissertation. The handbook first situates the dissertation in its historical and institutional perpectives, and then addresses the transformation from print to digital in dissertations from supervision to production to archiving and accessibility. Finally, the handbook wraps up with a section on research methodologies and methods that rounds out the book with advice for prospective students on how to be the creator of a digital dissertation from inception to final delivery. This will be essential reading for all involved in contemporary university education' -
