Lexicon of Scholarly Editing

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. Rather than writing new definitions for these concepts, the Lexicon quotes definitions from academic journals and monographs. As such, the Lexicon aims to reveal the lively multilingual debates these concepts have spurred in the field.
