Second Call for Papers: Special Issue on Web Semantics for Digital Humanities

Extended deadline: 1 December 2017

Digital humanities is a new and emerging field, which brings together humanities scholars, social scientists and computer and information scientists to work on agendas of both fundamental and applied research. The field combines digital semantic technologies and (big) digital heritage data. Digital humanities research is typically driven by core questions in each of these disciplines: on the one hand semantic technologies are applied in novel ways in addressing research questions of humanities and social sciences; on the other hand these areas stimulate the development of novel methods in computer and information sciences.

For this special issue the Journal of Web Semantics is calling for the submission of novel and impactful research results demonstrating the design, development, evaluation and use of research methods and infrastructures based on Semantic Web technologies for cultural heritage data and use cases in digital humanities scholarship.
