Introduction – On which digital level are Portuguese Humanities? The answer to this question requires an approach to the Digital Humanities theoretical framework and an application of this framework to the situation of the Portuguese scientific research. It is the first crossover study (not restricted to a discipline) on digital practices in the Humanities in Portugal. Purpose – The goal is to analyze the digital practices in the Humanities in Portugal. Methodology - A sample of 18 Portuguese R&D units working in the Humanities was observed and their ongoing research projects were identified. The most important projects for an inventory construction were considered with an evidence categorization regarding digital tools embedded in scientific work and research outputs. Results - The analysis of 25 active projects and one research line shows that digital practices are poorly disseminated and communicated. Conclusions - The transformation encouraged by Digital Humanities is still at an early stage in Portugal.
