JTEI Issue 8 Announcement

[Posted on behalf of John A. Walsh by Paul O’Shea, TEI Social Media Coordinator.]

Dear TEI Community,
I am pleased to announce the publication of Issue 8 of the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative. Please join me in thanking our wonderful Guest Editors, Arianna Ciula and Fabio Ciotti. The full announcement of issue 8 follows.
John A. Walsh
General Editor, Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative


Dear colleagues and friends,

The editorial team behind the production of issue 8 of the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative (Selected Papers from the 2013 TEI Conference) is very pleased to announce that publication for this issue is now complete. This was a very rewarding collaboration yet rather hard work given the exceptional length of the issue. We have organized the content into themed sections:

TEI in relation to other semantic and modeling formalisms;

TEI as an expression of domain-specific text and data models;

TEI processing workflows and tools.

We would like to thank, first of all, the authors themselves for their scholarly contribution as well as patience with the editing and production cycle. Needless to say, the journal reviewers were instrumental to this issue taking the shape it has. Last but not least we would like to record our gratitude to our meticulous copy-editor/s (name/s?).

Three last items were just added to the table of content, namely:

Arianna Ciula and Fabio Ciotti
Editorial Introduction to Issue 8 of the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative

Fabio Ciotti, Maurizio Lana, and Francesca Tomasi
TEI, Ontologies, Linked Open Data: Geolat and Beyond

Karlheinz Mörth, Laurent Romary, Gerhard Budin, and Daniel Schopper
