        Subject: Reminder: Scholarly Editing CFP

Dear Colleagues:

Just a reminder that the deadline for edition proposals for the 2017 issue
of Scholarly Editing is July 20. See more information below.


Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary Editing 
(www.scholarlyediting.org) invites edition proposals for the 2017 issue.
Many scholars know about fascinating, little-known, or understudied texts
that deserve to be edited thoughtfully and imaginatively. We offer a venue
to turn this knowledge into sustainable, peer-reviewed publications that
will enrich the digital record of our cultural heritage. If you are
interested in editing a small-scale digital edition, we want to hear from
you. Proposals for the 2017 issue are due by July 20, 2016.  

Proposals should be approximately 1000 words long and should include the
following information:

-       A description of content, scope, and approach. Please describe
the materials you will edit and how you will approach editing and
commenting on them. A well-researched apparatus (an introduction,
annotations, etc.) will be key to most successful proposals.

-       A statement of significance. Please briefly explain how this
edition will contribute to your field.

-       Approximate length. 

-       Description of technical proficiency. With only rare exceptions,
any edition published by Scholarly Editing must be in XML (Extensible
Markup Language) that complies with TEI (Text Encoding Initiative)
Guidelines, which have been widely accepted as the de facto standard for
digital textual editing. Though experience with TEI is not necessary in
order to publish an edition, a sense of your technical experience will help
us to assess the viability of the edition. Please indicate your facility
with TEI or explain why another technical approach makes better sense for
your work.

-       A brief description of how you imagine the materials should be
visually represented. Scholarly Editing will provide support to display
images and text in an attractive house style. If you wish to create a
highly customized display, please describe it and indicate what
technologies you plan to use to build it.

Scholarly Editing: The Annual of the Association for Documentary Editing also
publishes articles and reviews about scholarly editing.  A CFP for articles
will be forthcoming later this year.

Edition proposals should be sent as Rich Text Format (RTF), MS Word, or PDF
via email to:
