How can our tools help you?

Clariah develops tools that can be used by researchers from a large number of disciplines within the Humanities and Social Sciences. A good example of these are tools that allow researchers to analyze and annotate textual material, be it legal texts, plays, religious writings or tweets.

In addition, we develop tools for specific disciplines or types of research, such as linguistics, socio-economic history, media studies and research in disciplines that primarily use textual resources like literary studies, religious studies and philosophy.

Thirdly, Clariah develops facilities that enable collaboration between different scientific disciplines and their specific tools and data.

Get started with our tools

  • Many tools can be used by any visitor online and/or offline.
  • Some tools require you to log in. Researchers and students from Dutch universities and research institutions can usually log in with the account of their own organization.
  • Other professional users must first request access, for example due to copyright on the material within a tool or dataset.
