European survey on scholarly practices and digital needs in the arts and humanities

Introduction by OpenMethods Editor (Maciej Maryl): This report (available in English, French, German, Polish and Spanish) summarizes the findings of a web-based survey conducted in 2014/2015 by the Digital Methods and Practices Observatory (DiMPO), a DARIAH working group. The survey was dedicated to the use of digital methods and tools in the humanities research.

In order to provide an evidence-based, up-to-date, and meaningful account of the emerging information practices, needs and attitudes of arts and humanities researchers in the evolving European digital scholarly environment, the web survey involved a transnational team of researchers from more than a dozen countries, and addressed digitally-enabled research practices, attitudes and needs in all areas of Europe and across different arts and humanities disciplines and contexts.
