Digital Research Data Management in the Humanities

The increasing presence of digital workflows in science changes the daily work of scientists as well as the outcomes of scientific projects: Digital research data arises in almost every scientific project, no matter if it’s a SFB or a thesis.

Digital research data, that is very heterogeneous in the humanities, must be well documented, accessible, citable and presentable for the next generations. To ensure this is not only good scientific practice, but also a decisive approval criterion for research projects applications. Within this 2-day workshop the students will learn about the structures of digital research data management. The development of basic knowledge about research data management and the awareness about its necessity are the core goals of the workshop.

The workshop language is German.
