Description

This series seeks to refine methods and strategies for the creation of commentary and annotation, the aim being to bring together scholars, users and practitioners in the field to open the debate towards redefining standards and disseminating “best practice”, and to explore innovative approaches to annotation (e.g., crowd sourcing models for digital projects).

Each session features short presentations by four experts, followed by questions and observations from the audience. They will highlight some of the challenges faced by editors writing annotations for both general and academic readers, outline the criteria they apply when deciding what to annotate, and discuss some of the problems encountered in the transition from print to digital editing.
