Special Issue on Web Semantics for Digital Humanities

The Journal of Web Semantics invites submissions for a special issue on Web Semantics for Digital Humanities to be edited by Lora Aroyo, Franciska de Jong, Eero Hyvönen and Sara Tonelli.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Submissions due 1st 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.  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.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

    Application of semantic Web technologies in literary, linguistic, cultural, media, and historical studies
    Semantics, linked (open) data and ontology-driven applications for the exploration of online cultural heritage collections
    Semantic enrichment of digital cultural heritage media
    Text mining and image mining (e.g. stylometry, topic modelling, sentiment mining) for the digital humanities
    Knowledge extraction and knowledge discovery based on cultural heritage data
    The role of semantic web technologies in the digitization and curation of cultural heritage objects
    Software development, systems design and information modelling in the cultural heritage domain
    Semantics-driven interfaces and interaction with heritage objects
    The role of semantics in advanced interaction technologies, e.g. augmented reality, VR, 3D, gaming
    The role of semantics in infrastructures and virtual research environments for digital humanities
    User studies and practices with semantics and linked (open) data
