The DARIAH Working Group ELDAH is thrilled to announce the launch of the DARIAH ELDAH Consent Form Wizard (CFW), a tool that provides GDPR-compliant consent form templates for DH research purposes.
Since the coming into effect of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), humanities researchers have been unsure about how to do certain parts of their research while considering their subjects’ right to privacy. The DARIAH Working Group ELDAH has decided to fill this gap by developing the Consent Form Wizard (CFW).
This tool enables researchers to correctly approach the management of personal data in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). After responding to a series of questions, researchers receive a standardized consent form template for collecting consent from data subjects in DH projects (e.g. from visitors of scientific events, survey participants, etc.). The provided consent forms are valid throughout the entire European Union and will therefore serve the entire DARIAH and DH community.
To learn more about data privacy in general and how to use the CFW, join ELDAH’s virtual workshop “Addressing legal and ethical dimensions of the processing of personal data in research contexts: The ELDAH Consent Wizard as a tool for fostering best practices for consent and transparency in DH” at the DARIAH Annual Event on Wednesday, October 28, 2020, 10 a.m. CEST. Registration to the event will open soon.
