    • Additional Information

Working Group 3 should be committed to providing the methodological and theoretical underpinnings for 'Interedition'. Although the 'IT' in the naming of the Working Group might suggest otherwise, we specifically mean this Working Group to be the place where IT-experts listen to experts in scholarly editing, to be able to express the primary tasks involved in scholarly editing in technical functional requirements and specifications. In the Birmingham Working Group meeting we'd like to have this Working Group focus on the following:

  • primary tasks involved in the creation of scholarly editions
  • thematic use cases for digital infrastructure for the production of scholarly editions
  • thematic use cases for the reception or (intended) use of digital scholarly editions
  • a list of key benefits scholarly editors may derive from digital editions
  • a list of key benefits that users of editions may derive from digital editions

    • Additional Information

Working Group 4 will eventually produce the document called 'Roadmap for An Interoperable Supranational Infrastructure for Digital Scholarly Editing'. The sole objective of the Birmingham meeting for this Working Group is to come up with a concept table of contents for the document. The table of contents of the document will in all likelihood be subject to major changes over the years. However we intend this table of contents to be a gentle guideline for the progress of the project as a whole, and so it will probably shape the objectives and content of future meetings and workshops.
