Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The predecessor of digital humanities is "humanities computing", a name that reflects the original understanding of the field: the application of computers as a new tool to the humanities to solve problems. Distant reading is the cornerstone of digital humanities, and the visualization is one of the most effective means of presenting distant reading. Thus, the importance of visualization in the field of digital humanities is self-evident.

This Special Issue seeks contributions on recent research from scholars who engage in the context of digital humanities and visualization. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Digital close reading;
  • Distant reading;
  • Discourse analysis;
  • Translation studies;
  • Textual variation;
  • Text re-use detection and analysis;
  • Digital libraries.

Original research articles and review papers are welcomed. Well-prepared papers whose authors first submit the abstract to the Editorial Office will be eligible for discounts on the APC.

Data integration is one of the most challenging tasks for digital collections whose data are stored across various repositories. Data integration across digital repositories has several challenges. First, data heterogeneity in terms of data schema and data values usually occurs across diverse data sources. Second, heterogeneity in data representation and semantic issues are among the problems. The same data may appear in different repositories with varied data representations, i.e., metadata schema. Recent research has focused on matching several related metadata schemas. In this paper, a metadata integration framework is proposed to support digital repositories in socio-cultural anthropology at the Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Anthropology Centre (SAC), Thailand. The proposed framework is defined based on the Metadata Lifecycle Model (MLM). It utilizes non-procedural schema mappings to express data relationships in diverse schemas. A case study of metadata integration over the SAC digital repositories was conducted to validate the framework. The SAC common metadata schema was designed to support data mapping across 13 digital repositories. The SAC “One Search” system was developed to exemplify the system implementation of the framework. Evaluation results showed that the proposed metadata integration framework can support domain experts in socio-cultural anthropology in unified searching across the repositories. Full article
