CFP: Special Issue on Web Semantics for Digital Humanities

Journal of Web Semantics, the leading international journal in its field of research,  has announced a call for papers for a special issue on "Web Semantics for Digital Humanities". 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. This special issue 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.
