The project aims to expand and coordinate subject-specific infrastructures in the field of digital humanities and research data management for the group of research-intensive regional-studies and humanities disciplines within the BUA. These disciplines are characterized by a heterogeneity of digital "data" in non-Latin scripts (NLS), both due to their subject matter and international collaborations in research and teaching. The project supports the BUA initiative "Concept Development for Collaborative Research Data Management Service" and aims to contribute to the integration of data handling in non-Latin scripts into all planning for the establishment of subject-specific "data communities.
