Beyond Browsing and Reading: The Open Work of Digital Scholarly Editions

Jon Saklofske, Jake Bruce


INKE’s Modelling and Prototyping group is currently motivated by the following research questions:  How do we model and enable context within the electronic scholarly edition?   And how do we engage knowledge-building communities and capture process, dialogue and connections in and around the electronic scholarly edition?  NewRadial is a prototype scholarly edition environment developed to address such queries.  It argues for the unification of primary texts, secondary scholarship and related knowledge communities, and re-presents the digital scholarly edition as a social edition, an open work and shared space where users collaboratively explore, sort, group, annotate and contribute to secondary scholarship creation.
