The Digital Humanities

Often, eResearch and RDM is understood as referring almost exclusively to quantitative scientific research. This is not the case! The sciences are very research data heavy, but the humanities and the social sciences also produce data, and that data also needs to be managed. Humanities data is also reusable, and it also needs a DMP. The Digital Humanities refers to tools, processes and critical awareness found in the intersection between digital technologies and fields of study within the humanities1.

The Digital Humanities is an exciting area, and is, by its very nature, collaborative and interdisciplinary. It encapsulated traditional humanities scholarship and research which has evolved and been enhanced through digital means.
