Dear Digital Humanities Researcher,

Collaboration and research teams are increasingly becoming the norm
within the academic research environment, especially within the
Humanities Computing/Digital Humanities (HC) environment.  The research
projects in this area need a variety of skills and expertise to
accomplish their goals.  At present, there are several national and
international projects as well as numerous ones at the local level with
many others in development.  Despite this extensive use of research
terms, there are few protocols in place to prepare individuals to work
as part of a team.  To address this gap, a team of researchers is
undertaking work to identify effective work patterns and intra-team
relationships and recommend supports for existing and future teams.  The
first step towards this goal is to learn more about how research teams
function within this environment.

To do this we need your help.  We are distributing a questionnaire to
the HC community to hear the community’s experience and knowledge
related to research teams.  The survey is posted until Nov. 7, and can
be accessed

Your input will help us understand the nature of team research within
the HC environment and develop supports and research preparation tools
to maximize the likelihood of success by minimizing the associated
challenges of team research.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:
