About this blog

My name is Julian, I am a PhD student in Information Science at the University of Hildesheim and DIPF. I will use this blog to write about papers that I read or basic concepts in the fields of Information Science, Digital Humanities, Usability  and Open Science, but I will also write about things I encounter which might not be always scientific.

I try to explain the concepts of the papers in a way that everyone understands it and try to provide you with information for further reading. Still this blog will also be used to improve my scientific writing, so there might be mistakes in the articles. If you find mistakes or have questions, please comment the articles. Please also note that this blog does not fulfill the standards of a scientific paper. I might not quote all my sources and will not explain every detail that might be important for you.

If you want to know more about my work, check out some of my projects:

  • Semantic CorA – a virtual research environment based on Semantic Media Wiki. Basically the basis of most of the projects
  • Interlinking Pictura – a citizen science project with the amazing pictures of the “Bilderbuch für Kinder” by Friedrich Justin Bertuch from the beginning of the nineteenth century
  • Schularchive – a wiki where researchers and school archivists can share the location of historical sources in schools

My scientific work can be found on Google Scholar, my ORC-ID is 0000-0003-3417-9486, my software is on Github.
