Gert Partoens, Bram Roosen: Clavis clavium: an integrated reference database and collaborative update platform to open up Patristic, Medieval and Byzantine texts

In this session we will present the results of the Clavis Clavium project: the development of an integrated online database of four different Claves (the Clavis Patrum Latinorum + Graecorum and the Bibliotheca Hagiographica Latina + Graeca). After a short introduction about the history and development of the project, the main focus of the session will be on how the Clavis Clavium will be able to help you in your research and on the presentation of the online platform that allows for continuous, peer-reviewed updates:What are the research advantages of this integrated online database?How does it work? – a look at the update platform of the database in actionHow will the quality of the entries be guaranteed? – a look at the peer review module that is part of the update platformWho will be able to contribute updates? – invitation vs. spontaneous submissionsWhat about bibliometrics? – a look at how contributors will be able to prove their work on the database (bibliometry) and claim authorshipWhat about the future? – what extra claves and functionalities we plan to add in the future? how Brepols Publishers guarantees that the database will keep working in the long run?[Clavis Clavium is the result of a three-year project between the KULeuven, Brepols Publishers and the Bollandists, cofinanced by the Herculesfoundation of the Government of Flanders.]
