This two half-days workshop “Measuring Change in Digital Humanities: Workshop on Impact Factors and Success Criteria” will take place from June 21-22, 2018 in Berlin, Germany. The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts and stakeholders of digital research infrastructures to discuss and reflect methods of measuring impact in the Digital Humanities.

In Digital Humanities (DH), there are currently no commonly agreed upon criteria to measure success and impact of research infrastructures, their components, services and tools. However, for digital tools and infrastructure components, it is essential to define how they are impacting research practices and how change induced through these services can be captured. Understanding impact areas will help to increase the visibility and transparency of research in DH and beyond, communicate the infrastructure’s benefits to potential researchers and funding agencies and strengthen the influence of digital research in DH. For this reason, we will bring together different stakeholder perspectives on impact factors and success criteria of digital research infrastructures in the Digital Humanities.

The workshop is free of charge but the number of places are limited.
