Digital Criticism Platform for Supporting Evidence-based Interpretation of Sources

Digital Criticism is a methodology for accumulating evidences and hypotheses in the reasoning process of research and linking them into the evidence network to derive facts through the analysis of network. We have been applying this methodology mainly to non-textual sources and obtained successful results on the identification of ruins in Silk Road areas. The purpose of the paper is to achieve better abstraction and organization of the methodology, and use the evidence network as the model of Digital Criticism Platform (DCP), which is constructed as research infrastructure using Semantic Web technology. The paper also shows examples of evidence networks in case studies about Silk Road ruins, and discusses the role of DCP when the research is requested to be more open.
