        Subject: Oxford Scholarly Editions Online

> March 2012 sees the launch of a major new publishing initiative from
> Oxford University Press – Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (OSEO) –
> the first phase publishing online the complete text of more than 150
> scholarly editions of material written between 1485 and 1660. Oxford
> Scholarly Editions Online will provide an interlinked collection of
> authoritative Oxford editions of major works from the humanities.
> This content constitutes the cornerstone of research in the fields of
> English Literature, as well as Philosophy, History, and Religion.
> Each title within the collection presents the full text of the work,
> as established by an authoritative editor, accompanied by the
> editor’s record of important variations in that text, and
> interpretative and explanatory notes. Most also have introductions
> placing the work and the author in a historical context, and
> explaining the editorial principles and the history of the text.
> Online publication of these essential scholarly resources facilitates
> navigation within and between editions, whilst retaining the
> traditional elements familiar to users of the printed editions. The
> more flexible online presentation opens up new possibilities for
> search and comparison.
