Slides from WORKSHOP - Introduction to Humanities Research Data Management (Part 1 Theory, Ulrike Wuttke) held at Luxembourg Open Science Forum, 15.11.2018 Reusable, machine-readable data are one pillar of Open Science (Open Scholarship). Serving this data reuse aspect requires from researchers to carefully document their methods and to take good care of their research data. Due to this paradigm shift, for Humanities and Heritage researchers, activities and issues around planning, organizing, storing, and sharing data and other research results and products play an increasing role. Therefore, during two workshop sessions Ulrike Wuttke and Jochen Klar will dive with the participants into a number of topics, technologies, and methods that are connected with Humanities Research Data Management. The participants will acquire knowledge and skills that will enable them to draft their own executable research data management plan that will support the production of reusable, machine-readable data, a key prerequisite for conducting effective and sustainable projects. Topics that will be covered are theoretical reflections on the role of data within humanities research and cultural heritage studies, opportunities and challenges of eHumanities and eResearch, implementing the FAIR principles and relevant standards, and basics of Data Management Planning. Learning outcomes: Participants of this workshop will gain an overview about issues related to Humanities Research Data Management and learn about relevant tools and information resources. Through a hands-on session, the participants will be especially equipped and skilled to draft the nucleus of their own Research Data Management Plan. Structure of the workshop: The workshop will consist of two sessions. In the morning session, the basics of Humanities Research Data Management will be discussed with the participants using examples from various humanities backgrounds and projects. The afternoon session will be dedicated to handson data management planning using the data management planning tool RDMO. This supervised practical exercise will offer the participants the opportunity to learn by doing. Participants are encouraged to discuss data management issues related to their own projects (or project ideas) ideas and to contact the trainers beforehand. Audience: The workshop sessions are aimed at Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage researchers and practitioners with who wish to learn how to enable good Research Data Management and the sharing and reuse of data from a humanities point of view. No special previous knowledge or programming skills are required. TRAINERS Ulrike Wuttke (Doctor of Literature, Universiteit Gent 2012, is a medievalist and textual scholar by training. She contributes to projects and networks in digital preservation and digital arts and humanities via groups such as the Working Group Data Centres of the Verband Digital Humanities im deutschsprachigen Raum (deputy convenor). Her professional activities focus on training and personal counselling on data management, open science and Digital Humanities as well as public relations, communication and outreach. She joined the PARTHENOS project and FH Potsdam in April 2017. She leads task 7.2 (Implementation of the Training plan) of the H2020 project PARTHENOS. She coordinates the further development of its online training platform, the PARTHENOS Training Suite, and the PARTHENOS eHumanities and eHeritage Webinar Series. Jochen Klar (PhD in numerical cosmology, University of Potsdam 2012, works in the area of data management and eScience at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) and takes part in various data related projects, both in astrophysics as well as in interdisciplinary contexts. He was involved in the development of several astronomical data portals (e.g. RAVE, APPLAUSE, CosmoSim, GREGOR). For the DFG projects RADIESCHEN and DFG-VRE, he investigated the sustainability and the organizational structure of data management and virtual research environments in Germany. He is the main developer of the Daiquiri framework for the publication of astronomical databases and of the RDM-planning tool RDMO (Research Data Management Organiser).
