Inspired by the Heritage Data Reuse Charter, the DARIAH-Campus Reuse Charter expresses the clear commitment within DARIAH to the six core principles of Reciprocity, Interoperability, Citability, Openness, Stewardship and Trustworthiness, and shows how this commitment is reflected in the design and daily operations of the DARIAH-Campus platform.
“I am delighted by this new chapter in the evolution of DARIAH-Campus,” said DARIAH Director Toma Tasovac. “As we worked on the charter, we realized it was much more than a static document describing high-level principles: it has turned into a dynamic tool which will guide and inform the future technical development of the platform.”
In addition, the new charter will outline and clarify how the learning resources available via DARIAH-Campus can be reused, providing benefit to our content creators, users and curators.
Fostering open access to scholarly resources as well as collaboration and fair data-sharing practices among the diverse community within the Arts and Humanities has been central to DARIAH’s mission from the very beginning. The DARIAH-Campus Reuse Charter reflects that mission in the field of training and education by highlighting a sense of connection between the communities around the platform and the development of our learning resources.
“The DARIAH-Campus Reuse Charter is a living document that will evolve with the development of the platform,” said DARIAH Open Science Officer Erzsébet Tóth-Czifra. “Committing to the values of open research is usually work in progress, cannot always be achieved overnight.”
As a next step, the Charter will be complemented by a Technical Annex explaining the preferred data formats, metadata standards and other important details.
If you are interested in testing the Charter as a tool to connect communities, frame the transactions between them or set ground governing technical implementation in your own scholarly environments feel free to get in touch with us.
