Duration: 1.5 hrs.
The aim of this workshop is to work together with scholars to identify a series of research workflows that better reflect the processes of scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. Once lifecycles are drafted, participants will identify points of potential sharing and open opportunities. These points will then be associated with current solutions and gaps will be identified.

Workshop abstract

A host of initiatives have moved the open agenda beyond simply open access to journal articles or monographs to a consideration of the entire research lifecycle and points at which this can be opened up. Further, we are entering a second phase of open scholarship whereby the community is now seeking to link together the many scattered solutions for different pieces of the research lifecycle. Open Scholarship offers an important opportunity for scholars in the social sciences and humanities. Although open access has gained traction more recently, it is well-known that widespread adoption of and transition to open access to journals and monographs has lagged behind many other subject areas for a host of reasons. Engaging scholars in these subject areas in open scholarship more broadly offers and opportunity to approach open from a multitude of angles. However, the research lifecycle that is presented and visualized by those engaged in open science typically visualises that of a scientist working within STEM fields. This follows an expected pattern (e.g. planning, implementation, publishing, discovery and impact, preservation, re-use) or sets of patterns in the form of sub-cycles (e.g. planning cycle, project cycle, publication cycle, preservation cycle, impact). These visualisations do not align with the process of scholarly inquiry that many humanities scholars and qualitative social scientists are engaged in and risks marginalising some communities. Imagine a professor of music, who creates bits of initially unrelated compositions and harmonies, which arose out of inspiration derived from listening to a gentle brook. These might give rise to new understandings of former theories of music or push forward techniques. The aim of this workshop is to work together with scholars to identify a series of research workflows that better reflect the processes of scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. Once lifecycles are drafted, participants will identify points of potential sharing and open opportunities. These points will then be associated with current solutions and gaps will be identified.

Target audience 

Foremost  researchers from the humanities and qualitative social scientists, with a secondary target audience comprised of those working within institutions to support researchers in open science/open scholarship.
