The E-Humanities Working Group from the All European Academies (ALLEA) opened a consultation on "Recommendations for Sustainable and FAIR Data Sharing in the Humanities", open to all till 15th July 2019.

In an effort to support Open Science practices in the humanities, the working group has drafted recommendations for humanities researchers working with data, seeking contributions from researchers and practitioners working in disciplines within the humanities, as well as policy makers and representatives of public and private organisations working in the field. The purpose of the open consultation is to gather broad feedback from active humanities researchers, in order to best tailor FAIR recommendations to the humanities.

The European Academies constitute a unique pan-European knowledge base that is trusted, non-partisan and long-term. The Academies therefore have an important contribution to make to debates regarding sustained digital infrastructures and project-funded artefacts, the achievement of long-term durable digital preservation, the societal responsibility for preservation of our digital cultural heritage, and research practices in the field of digital Humanities. The E-Humanities Working Group is charged with identifying and raising awareness for priorities and concerns of the Digital Humanities, and contributing to the Open Science and Open Access agenda from a Humanities and Social Sciences perspective, and building consensus for common standards and best practices in E-Humanities scholarship and digitisation.
