In addition to embracing and disseminating the fundamentals of Open Science, this portal finds its line of action in the interdisciplinarity of Digital Humanities, paving the way for research and researchers from multiple fields. We understand Humanities as an area of knowledge that encompasses the various forms of language, man's experiences in society and his reflections on the world around him. The scope of your studies can be defined as:
The term ‘humanities’ includes, but is not limited to, the study and interpretation of the following: language, both modern and classical; linguistics; literature; history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archaeology; comparative religion; ethics; the history, criticism and theory of the arts; those aspects of the social sciences which have humanistic content and employ humanistic methods; and the study and application of the humanities to the human environment with particular attention to reflecting our diverse heritage, traditions, and history and to the relevance of the humanities to the current conditions of national life.

The tools and databases selected and published on the Portal offer tools to incorporate, in the tradition of the human sciences, the approaches offered by coding, opening up new possibilities for corpus design and analysis. In this way, it hopes to contribute to the development of a sphere of knowledge that is still not very adherent to this paradigm shift in scientific practice, but with enormous potential for growth in an increasingly digitized world.
