2017-10-06 Workflows: how do researchers do their research? how does collaboration work?

By David Lewis and Terhi Nurmikko-Fuller

As part of the Transforming Musicology project, we have tried to examine not just the academic and the technological aspects of musicological research, but also the way in which such work is carried out. Naturally, there is a great deal of variation in the procedures, techniques and tools that people use, but understanding them is important, especially as musicology undergoes the technological transformation that gives our project its title. Where individual, specialised work is needed, it should be accommodated, but where commonalities do exist, they present opportunities for tool and data sharing as well as avenues for supporting collaborative investigation. Also important, as more parts of our research may involve automated methods is the ability to be clear about where they have been used, and what versions of tools and corpora have been consulted.
