Paper long abstract:

In the 1996 the first profile specific server about (Estonian) Folklore was established and was supported by Open Estonian Foundation. It is home to academic journals, genre specific databases, readers etc. All materials are full Open Access, open source software driven and available for everyone. We do not track our users nor send them adds, all our journals follow double-blind reviewing procedure since 1997 and articles are DOI numbers even backward. The presentation will provide an overview of successful sub-projects and tools that help folklorists to create maps, statistics and follow the topography of certain types; specify keywords, tags etc. Data bases, including the newest social media and multimodal archives, and additional tools give scholars the possibities for multidimensional analysis, or even prepare the academic volumes. This presentation is about efficiency and possible future strategies will be discussed.
