Research Tools: Use Cases

Eleven case studies of research tools to show their potential & relevance in the research landscape.

7 June 2012 - 1 August 2014,  00:00 - 00:00, 

Research tools that are freely available and accessible via the Internet cover an emergent field in the worldwide research infrastructure. Clearly, research tools have increasing value for researchers in their research activities. How are these research tools developed? What are their possibilities? How many researchers use them? In addition, what does this relatively new phenomenon mean for the research infrastructure?

For this project, we interviewed the makers of those research tools. You can read the interviews in the 11 Use Cases below as well as an additional report by the interviewers, providing some observations and recommendations for possible improvements of the research infrastructure.
