Scholarly Exchange Digital Humanities Exciting and Necessary

FAIR Data Use was the topic of the workshop that was organized this week by Brepols and the Leibniz Institute of European History in Mainz, allowing ReIReS to analyse its data for the FAIR principle.

FAIR stands for findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable, and is of high importance to the research infrastructure ReIReS is building, since knowledge of religious traditions should be available and accessible in the best way, in order to create better research.

The workshop was attended by scholars and others from ReIReS beneficiaries, who could learn from each other and from the invited colleagues from other research infrastructures like DARIAH, PARTHENOS and CLARIN.

Issues related to AAI (Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure ) and metadata quality were discussed, as well as legal aspects and topics related to copyright and licences. Digital humanities is a fascinating domain and constantly developing, which makes a scholarly exchange not only exciting, but also necessary.

ReIReS will use the input of this workshop and a recent workshop that was held in Warsaw in order to write an Integration of User Services Report (IUSR), which defines the proper standards of access to the integrated set of expertise, sources, resources and facilities that ReIReS offers.
