  "description": "<p><strong>Slides from WORKSHOP - Introduction to Humanities Research Data Management (Part 1 Theory, Ulrike Wuttke) held at Luxembourg Open Science Forum, 15.11.2018</strong></p>\n\n<p>Reusable, machine-readable data are one pillar of Open Science (Open Scholarship). Serving this data<br>\nreuse aspect requires from researchers to carefully document their methods and to take good care of<br>\ntheir research data. Due to this paradigm shift, for Humanities and Heritage researchers, activities and<br>\nissues around planning, organizing, storing, and sharing data and other research results and products<br>\nplay an increasing role. Therefore, during two workshop sessions Ulrike Wuttke and Jochen Klar will dive<br>\nwith the participants into a number of topics, technologies, and methods that are connected with<br>\nHumanities Research Data Management. The participants will acquire knowledge and skills that will<br>\nenable them to draft their own executable research data management plan that will support the<br>\nproduction of reusable, machine-readable data, a key prerequisite for conducting effective and<br>\nsustainable projects. Topics that will be covered are theoretical reflections on the role of data within<br>\nhumanities research and cultural heritage studies, opportunities and challenges of eHumanities and<br>\neResearch, implementing the FAIR principles and relevant standards, and basics of Data Management<br>\nPlanning.</p>\n\n<p><br>\n<strong>Learning outcomes</strong>: Participants of this workshop will gain an overview about issues related to<br>\nHumanities Research Data Management and learn about relevant tools and information resources.<br>\nThrough a hands-on session, the participants will be especially equipped and skilled to draft the nucleus<br>\nof their own Research Data Management Plan.</p>\n\n<p><br>\n<strong>Structure of the workshop</strong>: The workshop will consist of two sessions. In the morning session, the<br>\nbasics of Humanities Research Data Management will be discussed with the participants using examples<br>\nfrom various humanities backgrounds and projects. The afternoon session will be dedicated to handson<br>\ndata management planning using the data management planning tool RDMO. This supervised<br>\npractical exercise will offer the participants the opportunity to learn by doing. Participants are<br>\nencouraged to discuss data management issues related to their own projects (or project ideas) ideas<br>\nand to contact the trainers beforehand.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Audience</strong>: The workshop sessions are aimed at Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage researchers<br>\nand practitioners with who wish to learn how to enable good Research Data Management and the<br>\nsharing and reuse of data from a humanities point of view. No special previous knowledge or<br>\nprogramming skills are required.</p>\n\n<p><br>\nTRAINERS<br>\n<strong>Ulrike Wuttke</strong> (Doctor of Literature, Universiteit Gent 2012, is a medievalist and<br>\ntextual scholar by training. She contributes to projects and networks in digital preservation and digital<br>\narts and humanities via groups such as the Working Group Data Centres of the Verband Digital<br>\nHumanities im deutschsprachigen Raum (deputy convenor). Her professional activities focus on training<br>\nand personal counselling on data management, open science and Digital Humanities as well as public<br>\nrelations, communication and outreach. She joined the PARTHENOS project and FH Potsdam in April<br>\n2017. She leads task 7.2 (Implementation of the Training plan) of the H2020 project PARTHENOS. She<br>\ncoordinates the further development of its online training platform, the PARTHENOS Training Suite, and<br>\nthe PARTHENOS eHumanities and eHeritage Webinar Series.</p>\n\n<p><br>\n<strong>Jochen Klar </strong>(PhD in numerical cosmology, University of Potsdam 2012, works in the area of<br>\ndata management and eScience at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) and takes part in<br>\nvarious data related projects, both in astrophysics as well as in interdisciplinary contexts. He was<br>\ninvolved in the development of several astronomical data portals (e.g. RAVE, APPLAUSE, CosmoSim,<br>\nGREGOR). For the DFG projects RADIESCHEN and DFG-VRE, he investigated the sustainability and the<br>\norganizational structure of data management and virtual research environments in Germany. He is the<br>\nmain developer of the Daiquiri framework for the publication of astronomical databases and of the<br>\nRDM-planning tool RDMO (Research Data Management Organiser).</p>\n\n<p>Links:<br>\nPARTHENOS Main Site: <a href=\"\"></a><br>\nPARTHENOS Training Suite: <a href=\"\"></a><br>\nRDMO Main Site: <a href=\"\"></a></p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>",
