Thanks Jenny, great post! Here is another Open Science session from the festival:

Open Data and the Panton Principles for the Humanities. How do we go about that?

Sched entry: http://sched.co/1oRW5kv
Etherpad: https://pad.okfn.org/p/Panton_Principles_for_the_Humanities
Slides: http://slideshare.net/pkraker/opendata-humanities

Organized by Iain Emsley (Open Humanities Open Knowledge Working Group), facilitated by Peter Kraker (Know-Center/OKF Panton Fellow)

The goal of this session is to devise a set of clear principles which describe what we mean by Open Data in the humanities, what these should contain and how to the use them.

Peter kicked off with a presentation to get everyone up to speed (see slideshare.net/pkraker/opendata-humanities). We first went go through definitions for open science and open data. Then, we looked at the Panton Principles for Open Data in Science (see http://pantonprinciples.org) and a proposed adaptation for the humanities (see http://austgate.co.uk/2013/10/repost-of-principles-for-open-humanities-and-literature/).

Afterwards, we had an animated discussion on the issues of open data in the humanities (the discussion is summed up nicely in the Etherpad: https://pad.okfn.org/p/Panton_Principles_for_the_Humanities). This exchange gave us a number of problems with open data in the humanities (see http://i.imgur.com/GucCJaJ.jpg) to work with. Then, the participants got together into groups of 3 or 4 to come up with solutions to these problems. Finally, each group presented their solutions (see http://i.imgur.com/QuA62rA.jpg).

Many thanks to Jenny.

After all the fun of OKFest it takes determination to write it all up afterwards!

You can access all the etherpads, presentations, tweets etc from the open science sessions at OKFest on this round-up page at the working group website:


Session organisers and attendees, if you have photos, presentations, blog posts or more to link please get in touch.

Likewise, if you'd like to volunteer to summarise the outcome of a session that doesn't currently have a write up I;d be really grateful! This material will also be transferred to the working group wiki - if anyone has wiki expertise and a bit of time to assist with this that would be amazing.

Thanks all :)
