The Research IT Group at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science aims to provide an optimal infrastructure for operating digital resources, tools, and publication channels. The specific task is to develop instruments adapted to exploit the promising potential of the digital world both for research and for academic publishing.

Members of Research IT work on all aspects of digital scholarship at the Institute. Within individual research projects, they are responsible for digital workflows and developing research tools. They strive to employ cutting-edge digital methods in humanities research, while making sure that the research outputs produced adhere to best practices in terms of standards, accessibility, usability, and sustainability. Research IT collaborate with researchers on projects that require non-trivial digital solutions and contribute to the ongoing development of workflows and tools to support the digital research infrastructure of the Institute. As both IT developers and researchers, they also conduct original research in the area of Digital Humanities according to their individual fields of expertise.
