Early Career Researchers Manifesto “Changing Publication Cultures in the Humanities”
“The recently published Early Career Researchers Manifesto “Changing Publication Cultures in the Humanities” is the outcome of the 2011 Early Career Researchers Forum “Changing Publication Cultures in the Humanities” (Humanities Spring 2011) which was organised under the leadership of the European Science Foundation (ESF) Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) at National University Ireland, Maynooth, on 9-11 June 2011.”
“The document presents diagnoses of current problems and opportunities around the event’s four themes: engagement, impact, language and future. The issues discussed are those chosen by the participating early career researchers. Overall, they identify a confident and proactive role for the humanities, one which can meet and address societal challenges.”
“The document culminates in recommendations to stakeholders encompassing publishers, funding agencies, universities and higher education institutions, research policy makers and early career researchers.”
