LINCS will enable a groundbreaking multi-disciplinary research program organized across three themes with critical masses of early adopters in each:
Making Connections, Navigating Scale, and Building Knowledge.
In addition to the research themes, LINCS is collaborating with numerous researchers engaging with a variety of domains and areas of inquiry.
The large body of data that LINCS will mobilize for cultural research includes a spectrum from those to be fully converted and human validated, through those that will receive some validation, to those that will be algorithmically converted and accessible, poised for further validation and enhancement by interested researchers or citizen scholars.
The LINCS Research Board is chaired by Kim Martin (Guelph),
with leadership on the three themes from:
Janelle Jenstad (Victoria): Making Connections
Stacy Allison-Cassin (York): Navigating Scale
Jon Bath (Saskatchewan): Building Knowledge
