Nanopublication beyond the sciences: the PeriodO period gazetteer
The information expressed in humanities datasets is inextricably tied to a wider discursive environment that is irreducible to complete formal representation. Humanities scholars must wrestle with this fact when they attempt to publish or consume structured data. The practice of “nanopublication,” which originated in the e-science domain, offers a way to maintain the connection between formal representations of humanities data and its discursive basis. In this paper we describe nanopublication, its potential applicability to the humanities, and our experience curating humanities nanopublications in the PeriodO period gazetteer. Subjects Digital Libraries, World Wide Web and Web Science Keywords Nanopublication, Periodization, Scholarly communication, Time, Linked data, JSON-LD
