Crowdsourcing for Humanities

Crowd-sourcing techniques have been recently used to gather vast amounts of annotations from non-experts working on-line through specialized platforms such as  Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT), or Crowdflower. Besides, other kinds of collaborative platforms for transcribing manuscripts, tagging digital content or correcting OCR output have been successfully tested in specific domains, fostering online collaboration among experts in the Humanities.
