Guidelines for FY 2016 Joint Research to Utilize Research Resources

→Japanese

The Art Research Center (ARC), Ritsumeikan University, has been vigorously promoting cooperative research between the humanities and cutting-edge information technology, whose research focuses on digital-archiving Japanese cultural properties, both tangible and intangible. In the fiscal year of 2014, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan, designated the ARC as a Joint Usage/Research Center. With the establishment of the Digital Archive Research Center for Japanese Cultural Resources, we are pleased to invite researchers to submit joint research proposals to facilitate research and/or utilization of Japanese cultural resources through their digital archiving and database building.

GUIDELINES

Eligibility

  • In principle, the research leader of the joint research team should be a faculty member/researcher/curator who belongs to a university or a research institution, including museums, libraries and local governments. Note: a graduate student cannot be a leader.

The joint research team as an organization

  1. A research team consists of its research leader and co-researchers.
  2. While it is recommended that the team include a faculty member of the Art Research Center* as its team member, you can apply without an ARC member, as well. If that is the case, we may assign a member to join the team as its coordinator.
    *In this case, the ARC faculty does not include senior researchers, postdoctoral fellows, researchers, and visiting researchers.
