Research practices in core humanities fields have developed over centuries, in contrast to the revolution in digital methods that is happening at breakneck speed. New methods are definitely out there, but it may prove difficult to change best practices in a particular field without national collaboration. Simultaneously, as data-intensive social sciences and humanities (SSH) research transitions from project-based tools towards national and international research infrastructures, new questions about sustainability arise. How can we ensure that the data and tools used in Digital Humanities and Social Data Sciences are reusable? What can new SSH research infrastructures learn about sustainability and distributed infrastructure networks from more established RIs in natural sciences?

Aimed at anyone using computational methods in SSH research and especially those thinking about foundational questions of digital infrastructure in the humanities and social sciences, this workshop will focus on the preconditions of reusing data and tools (documentation, best practices). We will also learn how Instruct Finland, a national, integrated structural biology network, supports state-of-the-art research, and hear about the latest developments regarding the SSH Open Marketplace, developed in conjunction with the Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC).

This workshop is organised by DARIAH-FI and supported by DARIAH-EU.
