Open Data for Humanists, A Pragmatic Guide

This resource is a guide that proposes a different approach to data management. It aimes at giving practical advice for arts and humanities scholars who are willing to take their first steps in research data management but don't know where to begin. Our approach to data management views it as a reflective process that exposes and tweaks existing behaviours, rather than one that introduces specific tools. It is intended to encourage awareness of one’s own processes and mindfulness about how they could be more open and how and how small changes across three points in your research workflow can make big differences.
