Abstract

This special issue was inspired by the Digital Approaches Towards 18th–20th Century Serial Publications conference, which took place in September 2017 at the Royal Academies for Sciences and Arts of Belgium. The conference brought together humanities scholars, social scientists, computational scientists, and librarians interested in discussing how digital techniques can be used to uncover the different layers of knowledge contained in serial publications such as newspapers, journals, and book series. In this introduction, we discuss some of the key concepts the reader will find throughout this volume, how they fit into the digitization and analysis workflow a digital humanities scholar might employ, and where the different contributions to this volume come into play.
