It's about time: historical periodization and Linked Ancient World Data (Article)
Title: It's about time: historical periodization and Linked Ancient World Data
Author: Adam Rabinowitz
Abstract: This paper discusses the current state of chronology, and especially periodization, in Linked Ancient World Data. It identifies a gap in the availability of comprehensive Linked Data resources that recognize the complexities of historical and archaeological periodization, and describes the PeriodO project as a potential solution to this problem. The paper was developed in the context of the NEH-sponsored Linked Ancient World Data Institute led by Tom Elliott, Sebastian Heath, and John Muccigrosso in 2012-2013.

A Sharing-Oriented Design Strategy for Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (Article)
Title: A Sharing-Oriented Design Strategy for Networked Knowledge Organization Systems
Author: Eric Kansa
Author: Ryan Shaw
Author: Adam Rabinowitz
Author: Patrick Golden
Abstract: Designers of networked knowledge organization systems often follow a service-oriented design strategy, assuming an organizational model where one party outsources clearly delineated business processes to another party. But the logic of outsourcing is a poor fit for some knowledge organization practices.When knowledge organization is understood as a process of exchange among peers, a sharing-oriented design strategy makes more sense. As an example of a sharing-oriented strategy for designing networked knowledge organization systems, we describe the design of the PeriodO period gazetteer.We analyze the PeriodO data model, its representation using JavaScript Object Notation-Linked Data, and the management of changes to the PeriodO dataset. We conclude by discussing why a sharing-oriented design strategy is appropriate for organizing scholarly knowledge.

Nanopublication beyond the sciences: the PeriodO period gazetteer (Article)
Title: Nanopublication beyond the sciences: the PeriodO period gazetteer
Author: Ryan Shaw
Author: Patrick Golden
Abstract: 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.
