This session is a discussion of open data practices in the humanities. We will go through issues and incentives, and take a look at several scenarios of open science in the humanities. Furthermore, we will discuss the Panton Principles for Open Data in Science, and how we can adapt them for humanities purposes. A draft proposal exists: http://austgate.co.uk/2013/10/repost-of-principles-for-open-humanities-and-literature/
The goal of this session is to devise a set of clear principles which describe what we mean by Open Data in the humanities, what these should contain and how to the use them. Audience participation strongly encouraged.
