Construction of trans-disciplinary data platform that explores open data in the humanities

To promote open science in the humanities, it is important to visualize what kind of new possibilities we can explore from the openness. Hence this paper introduces three types of datasets derived from open data created by the “network project for pre-modern Japanese text.” Those datasets have different users, such as humanists, computer scientists, so the paper discusses how to design the datasets to reflect user’s needs and expected results. Moreover, in terms of the image browsing platform associated with the open data, we propose Curation API as an extension to the existing IIIF specifications to enable users to enjoy curation, which amounts to the fragmentation and reconstruction of books based on the user’s own interest.
