Applying Linked Open Data: Refining a Model of Data Sharing as Publication

The further development of a platform and refinement of workflows to store, describe, and publish archeological datasets, using an initial collection of data related to trade and exchange patterns in the ancient Near East and East Mediterranean.

Twenty-first century humanistic research has unprecedented opportunities to advance new models of scholarly communication together with new data-driven avenues of investigation. This project will help establish "data sharing as publication" as a scalable and professionally-valued model for the dissemination of humanistic research data. The project will develop case studies involving cross-collections research on trade and exchange in the Ancient Near East and East Mediterranean. In developing publishing workflows toward Linked Open Data, the project will help align the needs of the research profession with rapidly expanding capabilities of the Web of Data.
