Open Scholarly Communities on the Web is a COST Action, launched in April 2006 and running through December 2010, which is dedicated to creating a research infrastructure for humanities scholarship on the Web and an advanced e-learning system for graduate students and young researchers. Open Scholarly Communities on the Web aims to create a digital infrastructure for collaborative Humanities research on the Web and to establish and foster the growth of Scholarly Communities that will provide feedback to the IT developers regarding the needs and expectations of Humanities researchers and will serve as a core group of early adopters.
