The Research Data Alliance and the Humanities

René van Horik

The goal of this report is to provide a broad overview of the way the Research Data Alliance (RDA) and the humanities as an academic discipline can be of value to each other. The intended audience for this report in the first instance are digital humanities researchers and service providers in the humanities domain. By providing basic relevant information on the RDA for this target group it is foreseen that they can benefit from the output of the RDA and increase their involvement in RDA activities. This report has the intention to be of interest for stakeholders in the RDA as well, since it describes aspects of the research data infrastructure of the humanities and this could inspire them to engage with the humanities research community.

The compilation of this report is part of the RDA Europe 4.0 project in which DANS (Data Archiving and Networked Services), the Dutch national RDA node, acts as an ambassador of the RDA for the humanities.
