Joint PARTHENOS-CLARIN-DARIAH Workshop on Applying the FAIR Principles

Joint PARTHENOS-CLARIN-DARIAH Workshop on Applying the FAIR Principles

The joint workshop, organized by PARTHENOS, CLARIN and DARIAH, focuses on the FAIR Principles, i.e. how to create and manage research data across various disciplines. The workshop will take place next 7 July 2017 in Utrecht (more information on the registration page).

PARTHENOS is building a cross-disciplinary environment to enable humanities researchers to have access to data, tools and services based on common policies, guidelines and standards.

CLARIN (research based on language data) and DARIAH (digital humanities) are participants in PARTHENOS and are contributing to the development of their domains.

FAIR Principles

The FAIR Principles have been formulated by a diverse group of stakeholders to stimulate the reuse of research data by introducing a common guideline. This guideline prescribes making your data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. The FAIR Principles are in compliance to the common policies being developed by PARTHENOS and applied across the humanities.

In particular, the guidelines on IPR, Open Data and Open Access address key issues related to FAIR data publishing. The current output of PARTHENOS includes a template for a Data Management Plan (DMP). Future work involves creating discipline specific versions of the DMP template.

Workshop objective

One objective of the workshop is to present and discuss the relevant polices, standards and guidelines and the DMP template and how it should be adapted for the various domains. Feedback from breakout groups representing different areas of interest and stakeholders will be used by PARTHENOS to review the current output and plan future steps.

The intended audience of the workshop consists of researchers, data managers and curators, and policy makers working in the humanities.
