The Digital HPS Consortium brings together academics in fields of history, philosophy, science, and other humanities, with computer scientists, archivists, and research librarians. As of the most recent consortium meeting at Cambridge University September 2012:
The mission is to develop, support, and promote digital HPS projects, including editing, publishing, and scholarly tools to make this possible. Insofar as possible, and recognizing the challenges and constraints, the Consortium is committed to open source and open access products. We are committed to developing sustainable infrastructure for the projects and products.
