Exploding, Centralizing and Reimagining: Critical Scholarship Refracted Through the NewRadial Prototype
Keywords:Digital scholarship, monographs, journals, INKE, NewRadial, prototype
This paper discusses the ways that INKE's Modelling and Prototyping team is extending the NewRadial prototype environment to re-present print-based monographs and journals, while enabling new layers and patterning opportunities for those existing forms of scholarship. NewRadial will also be modified to explore, support and encourage digital-born forms of scholarship that retain print-based affordances, but which organize argumentation differently (i.e. linked and layered mind maps, concept maps or flow charts). Through this, we are modelling different types of social aggregation within centralized workspaces to counter the isolation and scattered dialogues that often result from print-based distribution.
