What is Interedition?

Interedition is a COST Action; our aim is to promote the interoperability of the tools and methodology we use in the field of digital scholarly editing and research.

What does that mean?

There are a great many researchers out there in the field of textual scholarship. Some of you have written some amazing computer tools in the course of your research, and others of you could benefit greatly if these tools were openly available. The primary purpose of Interedition is to facilitate this contact—to encourage the creators of tools for textual scholarship to make their functionality available to others, and to promote communication between scholars so that we can raise awareness of innovative working methods.

Why should we do that?

Lack of IT capacity and sustainability are major threats to the continuity of our digital research sources, tools, and results. We want to network as much digital effort in our field as possible to create a common strong, supportive, interoperated mesh of our technologies that will eventually self sustain.
