In this special collection, we present data papers that span various areas of enquiry about the COVID-19 pandemic, through the lens of the Humanities. The wide range of data presented, from narrative to meta-data, has far-reaching and impactful reuse potential. It has been edited by Mandy Wigdorowitz, Sahba Besharati and Barbara McGillivary.
This Special Collection aims to develop a detailed outline of what an effective peer-review process for documentary linguistic materials might look like, and how such a system would foster better recognition for these materials in academic evaluation systems such as in hiring, promotion, and tenure.
