What is Heurist?

Heurist is a comprehensive, flexible data management service built specifically for the Humanities, available both as a free service, or for download to a private server (open source). Its development has been driven and informed by dozens of Humanities research projects.

Heurist is a human-centered interface to a MySQL (or other SQL server) database. It operates as a hybrid relational / graph database, hiding all the complexity of SQL, tables, relational joins, relational integrity etc. behind (fairly) simple choices. It’s available on a number of non-commercial web services (free to use) and on private web servers. You can also install it on your own server if you wish.

What we offer

We offer frequent training and collquia for our users, indeed for all Humanities researchers who use digital methods and require a database. Our users are a diverse community of researchers across Australasia, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. We also offer one-on-one support and ad-hoc training for projects who use our technology, or individuals who need a hand gettings started with Humanities databasing.
