About Digital Scholarship

Digital scholarship is a broad, interdisciplinary field that includes computationally engaged research and pedagogy, and digital publication. The field integrates traditional scholarly methods with new and newly emerging technologies to question and investigate traditional scholarly paradigms and utilize new methods of working.

Researchers and students interested in digital or open scholarship are prepared to integrate scholarly methodologies with technological skills.  Examples include open publishing, community-engaged research, text analysis, data mining, visualization, modeling and simulation, geospatial analysis and mapping, multi-modal storytelling, network analysis, and mark-up.

UW offers two minors in Data Science and Textual Studies and Digital Humanities where students can learn and expand their skills in these areas. The Libraries’ Open Scholarship Commons offers opportunities for students to build digital scholarship skills and techniques outside of a formal classroom setting.
