Research Outcomes

The main focus of this four-year endeavour was, of course, the completion of the dissertation, submitted as a monograph. In addition, contributions were made through the publication of articles in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, as well as writing a book chapter. Further essential activities included developing scripts for data collection and analysis, building data pipeline workflows, and designing and implementing data models, with a particular emphasis on using Linked Open Usable Data (LOUD) standards such as Linked Art, a metadata application profile for describing cultural heritage.

The research outcomes related to the PhD are organised alphabetically by category, with the most recent ones listed first within each category.
