DARIAH Technical Reference

This is the technical reference for the DARIAH Infrastructure. It is a collection of basic guidelines and references for development and maintenance of infrastructure services within DARIAH and beyond. This work relies heavily on work by the community and in particular CESSDA ERIC, CLARIAH-NL, DARIAH-DE as well as the Netherlands eScience Center and the UK Software Sustainability Institute.

This work explicitly relies on the Netherlands eScience Center Guide and the CLARIAH Software Quality Guidelines.

To make use of these guides, implementing an institutional manual based on this is recommended. In many places, possible or required choices are pointed out and should be made for a specific manual.

It is particularly recommended to adopt the Recommendations to encourage best practices in research software whenever starting a new project. Also, consider using the Software Sustainability Institute’s Software Management Plan.

Release 0.1.

The Technical Reference has been written by Carsten Thiel, Michelle Rodzis, Yoann Moranville.
