Open Up Digital Editions

Conference Banner

The Center Digital Editions & Edition Analytics (University of Zurich), in collaboration with Research and Infrastructure Support (University of Basel), is organizing the conference «Open Up Digital Editions» in Zurich, 24.-26.01.2024.

In recent years, numerous innovative digital scholarly edition (DSE) projects have been implemented in Switzerland. The result is a growing scientific community. With the increasing number of digital editions and the continuous availability of new edition data, issues of use and re-use are increasingly coming to the fore. However, many questions remain open and unresolved: Do editions meet the research needs? Which standards should future projects adopt? How do digital editions remain accessible after the end of the project? How can edition projects be linked with each other? 
These questions are of great concern to researchers, infrastructure providers and knowledge management institutions. The conference will provide a framework to discuss current approaches with a focus on developments in Switzerland and in relation to the international landscape.

Anyone with an interest in DSEs is welcome to take part in the conference. On-site and online attendance will be possible.

Organisers: Dr. des. Yann Stricker (University of Zurich), Dr. Elena Spadini (University of Basel).

With the support of: University of Zurich, University of Basel, University Library Zurich, Zentralbibliothek Zurich.
