Journal of World-Historical Information
Sujet : The Journal of World-Historical Information is dedicated to the interdisciplinary project of creating and maintaining a comprehensive world-historical data resource. The journal operates under the guidance of the Collaborative for Historical Information and Analysis (CHIA), the collaborative network which is creating the data resource. The data resource addresses several centuries in time with data aggregated up to the global level. The journal focuses on the particular problems of historical data : their heterogeneity, the high cost of collecting, digitizing, and documenting such data and, on the other hand, the high value of historical data for temporal analysis of the past and projection into the future. While other journal address separately the issues of information science, techniques of geographic and temporal analysis, and methods in historical studies, JWHI is distinct in focusing attention on the interplay of these aspects of creating, curating, and analyzing world-historical data.
