JHAC: A Journal of Digital Humanities
Call for papers - March 2022 special issue
“Linked Open Data in the Arts and Humanities”

Building machine-readable data and making it available on the internet has long
been a goal of digital humanities researchers. In 2006, Tim Berners-Lee along
with many other internet scholars advised that those practices tended to
perpetuate information silos rather than the open, available, and reusable data
that was the ultimate goal of linked open data (LOD). In the Arts and
Humanities, this tension between publishing research results in silos,
particularly where the underlying research data is never shared, and the desire
for open, reusable data remains. Digital humanities scholars have identified
this tension, have discussed the pros and cons of an open data approach, have
implemented research projects based on standards, and have advanced the
application of LOD in their disciplinary fields and in collaboration with an
ever wider community. Recent conferences and publications regarding LOD and the
Digital Humanities have focused on Archaeology, Classics, Geography, History,
Library and Information Science, or Linguistics; with this call for papers, we
invite also other areas or disciplines like Anthropology, Art History, Cultural
Heritage, Musicology, among others, to contribute to the debate on the utility
and application of linked open data.

We seek to highlight collaboration amongst a global, diverse and open network of
researchers, scholars, cultural heritage professionals, GLAM stakeholders, and
other practitioners, focusing on a shared interest in Linked Open Data applied
to Arts and Humanities. We are seeking submissions related, but not limited, to
the following topics:

● Development of infrastructures and LOD implementation
● Methods, standards, and best practices
● New data models and new resources in the LOD ecosystem
● Issues raised in the development of online open materials
● Pros and cons of open access to LOD datasets and tools
● Interoperable datasets that cross the disciplinary boundaries
● Theoretical approaches to LOD, Semantic Web, and Ontologies
● Exemplar case studies of LOD in the digital humanities
● Visibility and reuse issues of LOD ecosystems
● Sustainability of digital humanities projects that adopt LOD

Deadline for submissions: July 5th, 2021
Please see submission guidelines:
