5 April 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm BST
About the talk
The Journal of Open Humanities Data (JOHD), was launched in 2015 with the aim of promoting values of data sharing and reuse in the vast field of Humanities. JOHD publishes data-focused articles and aims to play a key role in growing a community of Humanities researchers sharing data. Over the past two years, JOHD has expanded significantly. It has published an increasing number of articles and launched new themed special collections of articles. Its role in the open data community among academics and professionals of the cultural heritage sector has been strengthened thanks to an increased social media presence and activity and to a number of talks, events, and participation in expert panels. Its team has also expanded, leading to a more diverse intellectual contribution. In this talk, we will share our experience from developing the journal into an important player in the open research and data-sharing community.
