Special Issue on Semantic Digital Archives
International Journal on Digital Libraries

Archival Information Systems (AIS) are becoming increasingly important. For
decades, the amount of content created digitally is growing and its
complete life cycle nowadays tends to remain digital. A selection of this
content is expected to be of value for the future and can thus be
considered being part of our cultural heritage. As soon as these digital
publications become obsolete, but are still deemed to be of value in the
future, they have to be transferred smoothly into appropriate AIS where
they need to be kept accessible even through changing technologies.

This focused issue arises from issues covered by the SDA workshop series (
http://sda2013.dke-research.de/) and invites submissions from all
researchers.  The workshop series has shown that both the library and the
archiving community have made valuable contributions to the management of
huge amounts of knowledge and data. However, both are approaching this
topic from different views which shall be brought together to
cross-fertilize each other. The Semantic Web is another research area that
provides promising technical solutions for knowledge representation and
management. At the forefront of making the semantic web a mature and
applicable reality is the linked data initiative, which already has started
to be adopted by the library community. Semantic representations of
contextual knowledge about cultural heritage objects will enhance
organization and access of data and knowledge. In order to achieve a
comprehensive investigation, the information seeking and document triage !
 behaviors of users (an area also classified under the field of Human
Computer Interaction) are also important to provide a comprehensive
investigation of the research topic.

This special issue will solicit high quality papers that demonstrate
exceptional achievements on Semantic Digital Archives, including but not
limited to:
- Archival Information systems (AIS) and Archival Information
Infrastructures (AII) in general
- Architectures and Frameworks for AIS and AII

- Semantic long-term storage & hardware organization for AIS & AII &
digital libraries
- Semantic extensions of emulation/virtualization methodologies tailored
for AIS & AII & digital libraries
- Implementations & evaluations of (semantic) AIS, AII, semantic digital
