Although OpenAtlas is freely available at GitHub not every project has the internal resources to cover all the aspects needed for a successful research project. For that reason some projects with available budget cooperate with the ACDH-CH, an institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, which can cover some or all of the aspects below. Every cooperation also supports and so guaranties the further development of OpenAtlas.

If you are involved in an open data project and interested feel free to contact us at openatlas@oeaw.ac.at providing this information.

Software development

Because the research focus of projects can be very different there may be need for:

Development of features requires time and money but once implemented they are shared by all projects.
This allows for good synergies between projects because of shared development costs.

Infrastructure

To use OpenAtlas an infrastructure is needed. E.g. a server where it can be installed and made available but also persons with time and expertise to:

Support

Even with infrastructure in place there might be need for support e.g.

Presentation website

Once data is entered and research results are available it may be desirable to present them to a broader audience.

Long term archiving

It is advisable to archive the data with meta data and make them online available for future use. At the ACDH-CH this can be done in ARCHE.
