CFP, “Sustaining Partnerships to Transform Scholarly Production”

Call for Proposals

Sustaining Partnerships to Transform Scholarly Production

An INKE-hosted gathering

27-28 January 2015 | Whistler, BC, Canada

 

Proposals Due: 1 October 2014

 

Scholarly communication practices are rapidly changing, and this time of transition indicates an opportunity to shape the future of scholarly production in open, flexible, and productive ways that serve the needs of many. As professional work becomes increasingly enmeshed with and supported by digital technology, practitioners have begun to explore different venues and modes for sharing knowledge. Recent scholarly communication developments, including open peer review systems and online academic publishing platforms, reflect this transitional period. For instance, in Planned Obsolescence Kathleen Fitzpatrick considers ways of “opening ourselves to the possibility that new modes of publishing might enable, not just more texts, but better texts, not just an evasion of obsolescence, but a new life for scholarship.”

TEI Simple

Northwestern University is pleased to announce a matching grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the development of Tei Simple, which seeks to lower the entry barriers to working with TEI documents by combining a new highly constrained  and prescriptive subset of the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines with a  a “cradle to grave” processing model that associates the TEI Simple schema with explicit and standardized options for displaying and querying texts. A major driver for this project has been the imminent release into the public domain of some 25,000 TEI-encoded texts from Early English Books Online (EEBO), but  the project aims more broadly at creating a friendlier and more interoperable environment for working with digital surrogates of books in European languages from the Early modern period into the 20th century.
