ECPO at E-Science-Days

From March 27–29, the Heidelberg E-Science Days 2019 titled "Data to Knowledge" took place at the Neue Universität. On Friday, Lena Hessel and Matthias Arnold presented the ECPO project in a paper entitled "Transforming Data Silos into Knowledge: Early Chinese Periodicals Online (ECPO)". ECPO joins several important digital collections of the early Chinese press and makes them available via open access. It provides full runs of publications including advertising inserts and illustrations, as well as 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. For more information, please refer to the abstract
