Writing the History of the Global

Jan Luiten Van Zanden

British Academy

Global history needs to take advantage of new research methodologies of teamwork and collaboration. Historians and economic historians can work together to provide historical data sets covering the world. New evidence gathering and analysis through teams of historians pooling expertise can create new public goods for global history. Examples are provided by current collaborative projects on national income, prices, real wages, and labour relations. Historians working in such teams must make agreements over who owns the data, the division of labour and who leads the projects and publications.

Keywords:   research methodologies, teamwork, collaboration, public goods, national income, prices, real wages, labour relations, intellectual property rights, publications
