Author(s):Su, Rina; Quan, Wei
Subject(s):Digital humanities
Periodical publishing history
Information visualization
Abstract:How to better apply computing technologies in humanities research has become very important in today's information-rich environment. Previous work on digital humanities in China has demonstrated the significance of the Republican era in Chinese history. However, periodicals published in the Republican era still need to be further investigated. In this study, we systematically organized and analyzed official periodicals in Guangdong, explored the history of publishing industry from the perspective of historical records, and visualized periodicals according to the publishing organizations, forms, timelines, and archiving locations. We contributed to creating the directory of periodicals (#4569) in Guangdong during the Republican era, categorizing periodicals into publishing organizations, forms, timelines, and archiving locations, etc., and applying visualization techniques to illustrate our analyses. We also contributed to preserving and protecting the historical and cultural heritage of the Republican era in Guangdong. Future work includes semantic analyses of periodicals from the content perspec-tive with a focus on publication prerequisites, processes, and ideologies.
