This webinar will discuss efforts towards recognising digital outputs, including datasets and software tools, within UK research excellence evaluation frameworks, such as the REF. By looking at key developments within the REF framework, the webinar seeks to highlight the importance of curated datasets through quality research in the Arts and Humanities. In particular, the webinar will explore what constitutes a world-leading digital output in terms of originality, significance and rigour as well as how this should be curated and managed, including demonstrating provenance and methodological rigour, allowing for access and interaction with the data, DOIs, as well as managing versions. It will also present best practices for making available the content and technical structure of the digital output.
