Since 2011 the French working group « Ethique et Droit » has been researching practical solutions toethical and legal questions surrounding the creation, use and edition of digital sources. The group comprises researchers, information managers and legal experts. It aims to write a collective guide on ethical and legal best practices when disseminating social sciences and humanities data. The guide will be published online. Since 2015 the project has benefited from the support of DARIAH (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities).
Several seminars have taken place since 2011 to discuss practical experiences and to start writing the guide. A series of blog posts has also been published on the project blog: https://ethiquedroit.hypotheses.org
The first part of the guide will gather an edited version of these blog posts and seminar presentations. The second part will be made of papers selected as part of this call for written papers. The call is open to anyone interested in the ethical and legal issues surrounding the dissemination of social sciences and humanities data.
