This year, we are celebrating Open Access Week by introducing fair and scholar-led Open Access publishing initiatives to the DARIAH communities. l over publishing. In the second episode, we spoke with Lucy Barnes and Dr. Janneke Adema from the the ScholarLed team. Lucy and Janneke tell us about price and prestige, what kind of experiences sparked the ScholarLed collective to life, why scholars’ involvement in scholarly publishing is important, and of course, how the DARIAH communities can interact with the consortium. Enjoy!

Open Access Week special edition #1: interview with Dr. Samuel Moore, co-organiser of the Radical Open Access collective
This year, we are celebrating Open Access Week by introducing fair and scholar-led Open Access publishing initiatives to the DARIAH communities. In the first episode, Dr. Samuel Moore, co-organizer of the Radical Open Access collective shares his views on which flavors of Open Access works best for arts and humanities research.
In the first episode of the DARIAH Open Scholar Stars interview series, we talk to Dr. James L. Smith, Irish Research Council postdoctoral fellow in geography at Trinity College Dublin, editor and Open Access advocate about the many ways in which creativity and openness fuels his scholarship.
A practical guide to leave the Ivory Tower behind: new PARTHENOS training resource dedicated to Citizen Science in the (Digital) Arts and Humanities
In this post, we have a look into the latest addition to the PARTHENOS Training Suite dedicated to “Citizen Science in the (Digital) Arts and Humanities”.
In the arts and humanities, digital data production is still expensive, challenging and time-consuming. We all know this, and yet the results of these processes often in the end can’t be reused by other researchers, meaning that we reinvent (or redigitise) the wheel far too often. This resource is aimed 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.
Open Access Toolkit: DARIAH’s practical recommendations to promote Open Access within the arts and humanities
In this post we bring together recommendations, tools, platforms and other resources that you may find helpful when disseminating you research. All of them are available for everyone, regardless of geographical or disciplinary background, and can be directly and easily included in the publishing workflows of our communities.
Open Science is a great enterprise that comes in a variety of flavours. For many, it empowers individuals to become champions of social, cultural and technological innovation, a solution for the global serial crisis and a way for researcher communities to take back control over the dynamics of knowledge creation and dissemination. Also, from another viewpoint, it is a means for intellectuals to become better citizens by opening up their findings to the public and earning wider recognition in their research field. But it can also be thought of a skillset to make the best use of digital technology in the networked 21st century for more efficient, transparent, and reusable scholarship. Or simply a means to get more funding. Or, for that matter, a scientific paradigm shift that is not always easy to keep up with and translate to one’s own research practices. It can be perceived as a natural...
