ECPO presented at international conferences

Dec 10, 2018

The "Early Chinese Newspapers Online (ECPO)" project was presented by Matthias Arnold at two international conferences.

At the Eighth Conference of Japanese Association for Digital Humanities (JADH2018) "Leveraging Open data", September 9-11, Hitotsubashi-Hall, Tokyo, Japan, his paper was entitled "Early Chinese Periodicals Online (ECPO) – from Digitization towards Open Data" (abstract, slides).

At the conference "Herausforderungen bei der Analyse von Alten Schriften im Digitalen Zeitalter" (HAASDZ18), 29./30. Oktober 2018, Mathematikon, Universität Heidelberg, he presented a paper "Republikzeitliche chinesische Presse – Crowdsourcing und andere Wege in Richtung Volltext" (slides)

ECPO joins together several important digital collections of the early Chinese press and makes them available open access (https://uni-heidelberg.de/ecpo). It provides full runs of publications including advertising inserts and illustrations, and a detailed publishing history. For a number of periodicals the project added descriptions on item level: article, image, and advertisement. Each item's content is analyzed by keywords. The project also offers a cross-database agent and data API's for data re-use.
