Heurist Knowledge Management System

Posted by Ian Johnson on March 7, 2017

It is aimed at a broad range of Humanities data, characterised by rich text, multimedia, relationships, categorisation, uncertain data, spatial and temporal information, and the need to work collaboratively while maintaining access control.

Lexicon of Scholarly Editing

Posted by Wout Dillen on September 22, 2014

As its name implies, the Lexicon of Scholarly Editing is an open access academic resource that offers definitions for contested concepts in the field of Scholarly Editing and Textual Criticism.
