*CALL FOR PAPERS*
 *Digital co-curation and public participation *   The *International
Journal of Heritage in the Digital Era *is inviting papers for a special
issue on the theme ‘Digital co-curation and public participation’ guest
edited by Dr Kalliopi Fouseki of the Centre for Sustainable Heritage of
University College London and Dr Kalliopi Vacharopoulou, Independent
Researcher.   In the last decades, the development of technology has opened
numerous possibilities in the curation of heritage objects including their
recording, documentation and display with the aim not only to enhance
research and conservation but also to broaden access and education   At the
same time, the increasing development of theories and practices of public
engagement with museum collections have initiated discussions and debates
that often challenge the nature and aims of museum institutions. To this
end, digital technologies have contributed to the debates on the
participatory role of museum and heritage institutions. Indeed, it is
within this context that digital co-curation has recently emerged as a
practice that fosters public participation and the sharing of knowledge and
authority between curators, museum professionals and members of the general
public – including visitors and non-visitors to museums. By the term
digital co-curation we refer to curation of digitized collections in
partnership with non-expert audiences. The social media play a significant
role in this process. However, digital co-curation – as any form of
co-curation – creates concerns among museum and heritage professionals with
regard to the integrity of the collections.   The aims of this special
issue of the *International Journal of Heritage in the Digital Era* are to
investigate the issues that are being raised by digital curation and
co-curation through the theoretically informed analysis of case-studies.
Specifically, we are interested in the following themes/research questions:

   - What are the benefits as well as the burdens that relate to digital
   curation? This should be exemplified through successful and least
   successful examples.
   - What are the benefits and the challenges in digital co-curation?
   Similarly, successful and least successful examples should be used. How
   does digital co-curation function as complementary to curation of actual
   objects or digital curation? In other words, how does digital co-curation
   inform both curation and co-curation practices within the museum space?
   - What is the experience of participants in the process of digital
   co-curation?
   - What are the views of curators and other museum professionals who are
   involved in these processes?

  Important deadlines  Papers will be submitted by 30 June 2012  Refereeing
results will be notified by 30 July 2012  Camera ready FULL papers to
printer by 31 August 2012  Papers submitted to Multi-Science by 10
September 2012
