The OpenOttoman Portal website provides scholars, students and people interested in the Ottoman world with access to resources in Ottoman studies, particularly those from the rapidly expanding digital and digitized universe. The portal provides information and guidance in using digital tools and techniques specifically relevant for research in Ottoman studies, recommendations on best practices from people who use these resources, and examples of research projects using digital and computational methods. The portal also provides links to databases and digital models relevant to work in Ottoman studies, including examples of databases generated specifically from within the field. These and other databases are reviewed to provide additional guidance as to their utility and limitations.
