In this article lead by Mike Fortun and Kim Fortun, the authors discuss four different ways they are involved in and with collaborative projects. The Digital Practices in History and Ethnography Interest Group (DPHE-IG) they organized within the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is mentioned as part of these discussions.
The goal of this report is to provide a broad overview of the way the Research Data Alliance (RDA) and the humanities as an academic discipline can be of value to each other. The intended audience for this report in the first instance are digital humanities researchers and service providers in the humanities domain. By providing basic relevant information on the RDA for this target group it is foreseen that they can benefit from the output of the RDA and increase their involvement in RDA activities.
The RDA Europe Industry Advisory Board (RDA IAB), conducted a series of interviews with private sector representatives. The interviews focused in four areas: the role of data in the companies’ activity, the recurring problems that the companies encounter in this scenario, the initiatives to solve these recurring problems, and the opportunities for academia and industry to collaborate in their mutual benefit. The conclusions of this survey are reported and explained.
This special collection collects and gives visibility to research results and outcomes stemming from RDA activities. It includes papers describing the latest results of RDA working groups or interest groups that have recently produced an output, including recommendation and associated use cases that could highlight the added value of RDA work in the data related fields.
