Applications will be reviewed by an advisory board that includes scholars, librarians, publishers, and technologists from Duke, UNC-CH, NCSU, NCCU, TRLN, and other partner institutions, and will be evaluated based on the criteria outlined in the RFP.
Our goal for the 2018 Institute is to invite about 30 people to participate. We will likely invite a mix of small and large groups, and aim for a diverse set of projects and diverse set of participants both within and across groups. For the 2014 Institute, five teams of 6 people each attended, and for SCI 2015 and SCI 2016 five teams attended, with between 4 and 7 participants each. For SCI 2017, we invited 6 teams ranging from 4 to 6 participants.
