This etherpad has been created to help you to get the most of this session; to start and share the conversation before the festival, to document it during the festival and to spread the word about the outcomes after OKFestival. We've provided a template which we hope will help you to get started, but please feel free to change it to better suit your needs.
Facilitators, please ensure you have arranged for someone to take notes during your session. We encourage you to make the most of the etherpad. Use it to share documents/ resources/links before the event, to take note of the work done during the session, and to follow up with plans for the next steps afterward the session and after the festival.
BEFORE THE FESTIVAL
## Facilitator Contact Details
## Title of your session + link to Sched page
## Your session hashtag
For your session’s Twitter hashtag (http://mashable.com/2013/10/08/what-is-hashtag/), we suggest that you use #OKFest then add a short word or abbreviation after it to create a hashtag that’s unique to your session. So, for example, if you’re running a session on open access, your hashtag might be #OKFestOA. This will make it easier for people to follow along online and also to collect the conversations afterwards in e.g. Storify (https://storify.com).
## Participants: pre-event, to get in touch with each other (feel free to add your Twitter handle)
## Agenda + pre-festival materials, resources, instructions
AT THE FESTIVAL
## Participants - name, contact (if you want to leave it), number of attendees
## Notes from the session
anonymization problems/privacy concerns
missing tools for anonymizing data from social sciences
* make an explicit and robust statement of your wishes (reviews, questions,...)
* use a recognized waiver or license that is appropriate (explain, give guidance)
* no restrictive clauses like non-commercial - Open Definition
* explicit dedication to public/open domain
application to humanities?
* data is too narrow for humanities -> "a work" can be more
* description of re-usability of elements
* possibility of adaption is important
* Open Content Definition
* recommendation of explicit declaration of copyright status (cc by, cc by-sa)
Goals of the session:
* A set of clear principles
* perspective of humanities on open (data)
- accessability of works
- stuck at certain types (books)
- referencing problem: annotations
- no clear way to refer to place in text - nilf(?) annotation format
- problem with other media types (video, audio): privacy
- re-usability only of results (annotations,...), re-using original data very tricky
- unintended consequences / use-cases
- risks of e.g. survey participants, interview partners not addressed
- distinguish between data types in humanities: different principles needed
- not "what are open humanities" but "what are Open Data in the humanities"
- rephrasing of work for data valid? distinguish data from works
- problem of crediting annotations
- underlying principle: permissive and/or prohibitive?
- to which disciplines can these principles be applied?
- where is the link between Open and Digital Humanities? Digital: use/explore how computers can be used in the humanities - open as in Open; other link: publicly funded efforts are in the public domain (museums, ...)
group discussions about problems & solutions:
- tools that help making data compliant
- risk management: publish guidance on how to different data formats (manuscripts, paintings, sculptures) (museums, archives, libraries)
- what are data in the humanities?
- research materials instead of data
- talk with researchers in the field
- works are not data; blurry definitions
- foreign use of assembled datasets and possible loss of research results
- clear definition of what are data in the humanities is needed badly
- problem this definition could be context dependent
NOTES BY DAVID POTOCNIK
(level 0 problem)
data in humanities = in books
books are not digitesed
MOVE CLASSICAL CANNON TO PUBLIC DOMAIN
use pirate editions?
level 1 problem
no ways of REFERENCING moments in books
= no URI for books !!!!!!!
not unlike http://bookuri.com/aristotle/politics/42343
technically possible, but not done!
"How to put existing materials into the public domain?"
Is principle 1 permissive or prohibited?
"panton principles are not scripture"
rethink and make a crowd effort
WORKS vs DATA ?
but there is also other types of "objects of study" that appear in humanities
distinction HUMANITIES vs SOCIAL SCIENCES
OKFN has a working group for OPEN HUMANITIES
Join the Mailing list!
. Textus project
Open Humanities vs Digital Humanities ?
"Digital" doesn't care about licenses, openness, etc
A lot though is publicly funded, so gets in the public domain
Public funding pays for projects
books cost money to print
digital release not done because then "no one would buy books"
annotated / "improved" editions do not maintain the openness of the public domain work that it is based on
idea: a diff for humanities
TOPOI humanities publishing
they are commited to digital and open publishing
2 years after release it becomes PD
open humanities vs open data for humanities (?)
"What is OPEN DATA FOR HUMANITIES"?
this is what binds to the panton principles
participatory research ..?
----------------------> group work
1. PRIVACY CONCERNS
publish guidance on data in diff formats
considerations to be legal compliant / risk mgmt
2. problem of attribution
use research materials instead of data
motivation for research is attribution/citation
... so DOES THIS collide with specific levels of openness (like CC-Zero)
3. "fears of getting scooped"
you assemble a dataset
then "someone comes and scoops/publishes the best stuff"
so where is the incentive to publish primary dataset?
4. work is not same as data
forget about "data" in humanities
humanities is not science
"panton was bout legal protection and public domain"
OpenBibliography : open data for catalogs
"We need to give a list of things we think are data" !!!
assemble a list/examples of open data in humanities?
"list of poets"
"Map of parnasus"
...is this somewhat "para-humanities"?
Regards to Iain!
