Wikimedia Fellow Program "Freies Wissen" awarded to an Apparatus Project


Adelheid Heftberger, editor of Apparatus, has been awarded a Fellowship from the Wikimedia Foundation Germany. In her project "Enhanced publications: Filmographic Data as Linked Open Data and the Implementation of Audiovisual Media" she will focus on the integration of video content within Open Access publications. Adelheid will explore different video standards and e-publishing formats and will investigate both the technical challenges as well as issues related to rights management. At Apparatus we take Open Access and Open Science seriously and therefore are happy to support the project.
