Open Research in Humanities and Arts disciplines

Open research is about more than opening access to publications. It involves transparency of the whole research process. Many of the principles of open research can be followed in humanities and arts (HARTS) disciplines, such as applying good research data management principles in documenting, structuring and organising data to facilitate future reuse; working collaboratively; sharing sources, research tools and methodologies; using persistent identifiers or taking opportunities for open peer-review.

The UK Reproducibility Network has produced some examples of good practice, and resources relevant to different disciplines and below are some HARTS-specific links to guidance, platforms for sharing, and open access publishers.  While not forming a comprehensive list, these provide some pointers for implementing good open research practices.  HARTS researchers should also consult the general Open Research pages, which include information about open access books.
