PURPOSE OF THE STUDY:
Drawing on tools and methodologies from the fields of art history and digital humanities, my research explores the potential of online resources for the history of art and architecture and aims to establish best practice for creating and evaluating such resources.
This questionnaire aims to identify current best practice in the design and evaluation of online resources for the history of art and architecture. As, potentially, the digital counterpart to traditional research outputs such as articles and monographs, online resources require a number of standards to be implemented. This survey aims to explore the attitudes and practices of art historians, as both users/readers and collaborators/authors, regarding such standards.
The ideal respondent will have a background in art history and some experience of using digital resources for art historians. I would be grateful if you would also circulate the link to the survey among colleagues with relevant expertise.
This will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Your responses to this questionnaire are anonymous, and all data will be treated in the strictest confidence. The survey does not invite any responses that could pose any reputational or professional risk to respondents or others.
Data from this study will be kept for five years in case further research related to the previously mentioned objectives is needed. After five years, data will be disposed of through deletion.
The results of this study will be published as a dissertation. In addition, information may be used for professional purposes in academic presentation(s) and/or publication(s).
