Open Scholarship Beyond the Lab
How relevant is the open research and scholarship agenda to the arts and humanities disciplines?

As momentum builds to make scientific research more accountable and transparent, through the use of initiatives such as the pre-registration of research projects and the use of preprints, this is a timely moment to consider the relevance and importance of open scholarship for other academic disciplines.

To what extent can open research workflows and tools developed by the scientific community be directly transposed to other contexts? If the concerns of the arts and humanities demand their own approaches to open scholarship, what should these look like?

Topics for discussion in this workshop will include:

• philosophical and practical approaches to making and sharing interpretations of data and other research materials
• opportunities and challenges for arts and humanities researchers seeking to take an open scholarship approach
• experiences and insights from the front line of setting up and managing open access publishing platforms
