> Dear Colleagues,
> You may be interested in the publication of Sustainable and FAIR Data
> Sharing in the Humanities
> a new ALLEA report authored by the working group E-Humanities. It provides
> a series of recommendations tailored to humanities researchers to produce
> data and other research outputs along FAIR principles, and it was developed
> through an open consultation process. Press release below.
> Kind Regards,

> *Let’s be FAIR! ALLEA presents recommendations for sustainable data
> sharing in the humanities*
> A new ALLEA report
> <https://allea.org/portfolio-item/sustainable-and-fair-data-sharing-in-the-humanities/> provides
> key recommendations to make digital data in the humanities “Findable,
> Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable”, in line with the FAIR principles.
> The document is designed as a practical guide to help scholars, research
> funders, professionals and policymakers navigate the shift towards a
> sustainable data sharing culture.
> In a digital world, the abundance of data offers new opportunities for all
> research fields, including the humanities, where the digitisation of texts,
> images, sounds, video recordings and other data types can significantly
> contribute to advancing research, while also transforming methodologies and
> scholarly communications.
> But data requires management, and data management requires common
> guidelines for good implementation. In recent years, the FAIR principles
> <https://www.force11.org/fairprinciples> have been widely adopted as best
> practice in data management for research and other professional fields. For
> instance, they are quickly gaining ground in galleries, libraries,
> archives, and museums, whose data collections hold crucial resources for
> scholars in the humanities. Addressing these developments, the ALLEA report
> “Sustainable and FAIR Data Sharing in the Humanities
> helps translate these principles into practice. It proposes technical,
> legal and ethical considerations to construct, store, present, disseminate
> and preserve data in such a way that they can be retrieved, accessed,
> reused, and interoperable.
> *“To exploit the true potential of humanities scholarship, and to share
> and combine data across disciplines to address big challenges, we need an
> awareness and common understanding of the FAIR principles and the nuances
> of their implementation. It is clear from ongoing discussions in scholarly
> communication and through the development and rapid proliferation of the
> Open Science paradigm that the FAIR principles are having a sustained
> impact on research practice. To support scholars and institutions aiming to
> produce FAIR data, this report combines practical advice on how to align
> with the principles, with a focus on practical guidance from a humanities
> perspective. We hope they prove useful in the collective effort to move
> towards more a more open research landscape,”* states Dr. Natalie
> Harrower, Chair of the ALLEA E-Humanities Working Group.
> *Data management lifecycle*
> Following the data management lifecycle, the report is structured in five
> stages: (1) identify, (2) plan, (3) collect/produce, structure & store, (4)
> deposit for preservation, cite & share, and (5) disseminate. For each
> phase, a set of practical recommendations and further reading are
> presented. The authors consider the differences among data sharing cultures
> across disciplines in the humanities but also encourage pathways towards
> interdisciplinary data practices.
> *Launch and Public Consultation*
> The publication was prepared by the ALLEA E-Humanities Working Group
> <https://allea.org/e-humanities/> and builds upon the most recent
> developments in the FAIR and EU research policy landscape. A public
> consultation to seek feedback from researchers and practitioners was
> launched at ALLEA’s General Assembly, the annual meeting of European
> Academies, in May 2019. The working group received more than 200
> suggestions, which were carefully considered and incorporated.
> The report was launched at the 15th International Digital Curation
> Conference in Dublin on 18th February 2020.
