Normalization and Quality Control Pass Completed for All GMarc Datasets (LODLIB v2.12)

Today’s LODLIB update reflects datatype normalization and quality control checks across all of our GMarc datasets (Hahn, Zahn, Harnack, Tsutsui, BeDuhn, Roth, Klinghardt, Nicolotti). While we have only released the full text of the first three, since their print works are in the public domain, we have made use of all of this normalized data in our new data tabulations (3.7) and data visualizations (3.8). While our own iterative critical edition is still in progress, the counts and graphs for all earlier editions should now remain static, thus we are now comfortable building these data tabulations and visualizations into forthcoming journal articles and book reviews.

In other related news, Jason BeDuhn and I are meeting later today to discuss the Westar SBL session on Q and the Gospel of Marcion. Given our overlapping scholarly work, I’m very much looking forward to the conversation. I also received just today the proofs of my forthcoming data paper for the Journal of Open Humanities Data. It’s always nice to see one’s work as it’s about to go to (digital) press.
