ACM Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage
Special Issue on Computational Archival Science
Deadline August 31, 2020

The large-scale digitization of analogue archives, the emerging diverse forms of
born-digital archive, and the new ways in which researchers across disciplines
(as well as the public) wish to engage with archival material, are disrupting to
traditional archival theories and practices, and are presenting challenges for
practitioners and researchers who work with archival material. They also offer
enhanced possibilities for scholarship, through the application of computational
methods and tools to the archival problem space, and, more fundamentally,
through the integration of 'computational thinking' with 'archival thinking'.
This potential has led the collaborators in this proposal to identify
Computational Archival Science (CAS) as a new field of study, and our working
definition is:

A transdisciplinary field that integrates computational and archival theories,
methods and resources, both to support the creation and preservation of reliable
and authentic records/archives and to address large-scale records/archives
processing, analysis, storage, and access, with aim of improving efficiency,
productivity and precision, in support of recordkeeping, appraisal, arrangement
and description, preservation and access decisions, and engaging and undertaking
research with archival material. (https://ai-collaboratory.net/cas/)

This aim of this special issue is to explore the conjunction of emerging
computational and analytical methods and technologies with archival practice
(including record keeping), and their consequences for historical, social,
scientific, and cultural research engagement with archives. We want to identify
potential in these areas and examine the new questions that they can provoke. At
the same time, we aim to address the questions and concerns scholarship is
raising about issues of interpretation raised by such methods, and in particular
the challenges of producing quality - meaning, knowledge and value - from
quantity, tracing data and analytic provenance across complex knowledge
production ecosystems, and addressing data privacy and other ethical issues.

We welcome papers on topics including, but not restricted to, the following:
* Application of analytics to archival material, including text mining, data
mining, sentiment analysis, network analysis.
* Analytics in support of records and archival processing, including
e-discovery, identification of personal information, appraisal, arrangement and
* Artificial intelligence and archives
* Scalable services for archives, including identification, preservation,
metadata generation, integrity checking, normalization, reconciliation, linked
data, entity extraction, anonymization and reduction.
* New forms of records and archives, including Web, social media, audio-visual
archives, and blockchain
* Cyber-infrastructures for archive-based research and for development and
hosting of collections
* Big data and archival theory and practice
* Synergies between computational and human-based methods (e.g. crowdsourcing)
in an archival context
* Computational archives and the construction of memory and identity
* Specific computational or 'big data' technologies (e.g. NoSQL databases) and
their applications
* Corpora and reference collections of big archival data
* Authenticity and provenance* Legal and ethical issues

We wish to attract a broad set of researchers from the archives community, the
computer science, data science and AI communities, as well as the cultural
heritage community, into a truly interdisciplinary and pertinent special issue.
Authors are invited to submit papers on original and unpublished research and
practical applications concerning computational archival science. As with the
broader topics of JOCCH, we welcome submissions on Use-inspired Basic Research
and on Applied Research (https://dl.acm.org/journal/jocch/author-
