The requirements study for a publication architecture targeting multiple media is one of my research priorities for the DiXiT Network.
My task in this regard is to create an index of tools for all stages of the production of digital editions to be complete, survey the community for existing tools and publication frameworks, gather the user requirements and eventually develop a model of reusable components for a publication infrastructure.
To this end I’ve created a survey that hopefully will help to assess the software and technologies used for creation and publishing of digital scholarly editions. Here it is!
We are inviting scholars, young researchers, teachers and students involved in any part of the process of creation and publishing of editions to participate in this study. If you have doubts whether your project is an edition or archive project, please complete the survey anyway. If you feel you lack the technical expertise to answer all the questions, do it anyway as best you can and consider asking someone else to complete the survey as well.
We are primarily interested with the tools and workflows associated with processes of creation and publishing of digital scholarly resources. Therefore we are especially interested in descriptions of the bespoke tools and pipelines employed in your project so we’d appreciate answering the open questions as fully as possible. The results of the study will be used to help create requirements and develop tools for digital scholarly editions in particular and digital humanities in general.
The content written by you in the survey is strictly anonymous and your participation is entirely voluntary.
It should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
