Brill has signed an agreement with the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG) to cooperate on digital concordances, a new publication format that draws upon historical practices of concordances, not only to publish the results of research in the customary format such as essays, but also to present the data on which that research is based in a reusable manner. The goal of this cooperation is to investigate how the digital concordance format can be created and maintained sustainably from a technical, organizational and business perspective.
