The purpose of this event was to raise awareness and understanding of how open research practice and principles can be successfully and creatively embedded in Arts and Humanities disciplines.
One of the key findings from our summer 2020 awareness and engagement survey (link to report) was that staff and students in the faculty of Arts and Humanities have limited experience of many open research practices, with some respondents commenting on the perceived irrelevance and lack of support for such approaches in their discipline.
This event will address some of these issues and challenge the misconception that open research is primarily for scientists, with examples of good practice taking place amongst our community of humanists.
