Abstract [en]

While there are a number of scholarly databases which contain information about runic inscriptions, none of them can be considered to represent a corpus edi­tion in the true sense of the word. Such databases are, however, important sources of a limited amount of core information concerning the corpus or cor­pora they include, and as a rule they build on and at times even supplement or cor­rect information in the printed corpus editions. There exist three scholarly, supra­national data­bases important to runology and publicly available at the present time. These are: (a) the Scandi­navian Runic Text Database (Samnordisk run­text­­databas), (b) the Kiel Runen­datei (data­base of the Kiel Rune Project), and (c) the RuneS database (of the research proj­ect Runic Writing in the Ger­manic Languages). The origin, devel­op­ment and future prospects of each are reviewed here, along with their strengths and advan­tages as well as their weak­nesses and limitations.
