  • Introduction
    • Abstract: The papers in this volume derive from a conference on ‘Social, Digital, Scholarly Editing’ held in Saskatoon in July 2013. The motivation for this conference, and hence this volume, was the argument that, two decades after the appearance of the first born digital edition in the 1990s, two significant shifts associated with the digital revolution have brought scholarly editing to a critical inflection point. These shifts are, first, the movement of all data into digital form and, secondly, the creation of new modes of collaboration. For the first, in the last decades, the creation of massive amounts of data in digital form has transformed the basic materials of scholarly editing, while digital tools offer the possibility of developing new methods for exploration and publication. For the second, where scholarly editing in the past has been typically the work of a single dedicated scholar, the development of social media opens up new avenues to pursue collaborative work across whole communities.

  • The Walt Whitman Archive and the prospects for social editing
    • Authors: Price KM.
      Abstract: This essay considers both the promise and perils of "social editing," a term strongly associated with user-generated content. The idea of user-contributed content has been greeted with enthusiasm in some quarters and with skepticism and anxiety in others. We can learn from the crowdsourcing efforts undertaken thus far and can glimpse some of the new possibilities on the horizon. To what extent might users of electronic editions help projects such as the Walt Whitman Archive address the extensive and costly work that stands in the way of the realization of a digital scholarly edition? How can the Archive best negotiate the roles of scholarly specialists and interested users, and in particular, how can quality control be established without discouraging user involvement?

  • Afterword
    • Authors: Egan G.
      Abstract: At certain points in history, certain words take on a positive aura that makes it difficult to openly express dissenting or sceptical views about the objects, processes, or qualities they denote. Right now, social has this aura. This word’s role as a modifier to make the noun after it refer to society and other kinds of human association—as in social law and social life—emerged at the end of the sixteenth century (OED ‘social’ adj. 5a, 5b). Most recently, the word has attached itself to a relatively new word, media—first used to denote mass communication in 1927 (OED ‘media’ n.2)—to denote a new kind of technology of communication. Whereas the ordinary media provided only one-way, one-to-many, communication, the social media allow ‘users to create and share content or to participate in social networking’ (OED ‘social’ Special Uses S2 ‘social media’ n.).

  • The reader-oriented scholarly edition
    • Authors: Eggert P.
      Abstract: Recent attempts to computer-model the scholarly edition so as to permit the crowd-sourcing of its production have misunderstood its nature. Scholarly editions are, in their methodology and form, not unchanging, nor are their underlying conceptions simple. This essay is, in response, a reflection on the opportunities that the digital form potentially offers editors about how they may gain traction by taking advantage of the capacities and logic of the new medium. The main proposal stems from leaving the representational question on hold (how the edition represents the work and the methodologies used to achieve that) and instead considering the edition primarily as a transaction with its readers—those print-counterparts of the digital crowd. The history of post-war scholarly editions is reviewed for its evolving understandings of the reader-user. Then a conceptual separation between the archive and the edition is proposed so that a new, more reader-oriented definition of editorial responsibilities can be envisaged for digital scholarly editions—something that the logic of the print medium forbade.

  • Reliable social scholarly editing
    • Authors: Shillingsburg P.
      Abstract: If Scholarly Editing means the exercise of textual criticism for the production of digital archives and editions, then crowdsourcing may produce more problems than solutions because a digital archive is a surrogate for material documents and a digital scholarly edition is a precise argument about the archive. But the analysis of the materials in the archive is truly a crowdsourcing task, for which adequate software design is still wanted and careful monitoring and vetting required.

  • Project-based digital humanities and social, digital, and scholarly
           editions
    • Authors: Robinson PW.
      Abstract: There appears an obvious fit between the application of ‘social media’ technologies to the making of scholarly editions in digital form and the markedly collaborative nature of the typical digital humanities project. Accordingly, it may be argued that the model of the collaborative project-based edition need only to be extended, to become ‘social’. This article questions that thesis, demonstrating the problems that can arise with collaborative projects applying digital methodologies to scholarly work through analysis of the Shakespeare Quartos and the European Virtual Museum Transnational Network projects and arguing that the term ‘collaboration’ needs critical examination. Indeed, to the extent that ‘collaboration’ may be closed, and may serve narrow scholarly purposes, it can be the antithesis of ‘social’. In place of project-based collaboration, this essay proposes that we see ‘social’ editions as grounded in communities, not in collaboration, and that the principle upon which they should be built is (following Shirky) ‘design for generosity’. This implies a different role for the editors and scholars from the academy: rather than the leaders of collaborations, we may become key participants in, and enablers of, communities. In turn, this mandates a loss of control: generosity means allowing others to use what is given freely, including in ways not foreseen, and even opposed, by those who created the data. For academics who are used to identifying control with assurance of quality, this is a difficult step. Wide adoption of the Creative Commons Attribution licence (without the ‘non-commercial’ restriction) would take us far towards these aims.

  • ‘Why don’t we do it in the road?’: The case for scholarly editing as
           a public intellectual activity
    • Authors: McGillivray M.
      Abstract: This article makes an argument for an open-workshop editorial process for scholarly editions, in which preliminary research products such as manuscript transcriptions are published to the Web, as they are completed. A publicly accessible online working environment for scholarly editions would allow research assistants to receive proper credit for their intellectual labor, and would reach out to the worldwide audience of scholars, students, and amateur enthusiasts, potentially building public support for a kind of scholarly activity that is threatened within the academy. Two ongoing projects in which the author is involved are used as illustrations of the way this can work, the Online Corpus of Old English Poetry and the Cotton Nero A.x. Project.

  • The case of the bold button: Social shaping of technology and the digital
           scholarly edition
    • Authors: van Zundert JJ.
      Abstract: The role and usage of a certain technology is not imparted wholesale on the intended user community—technology is not deterministic. Rather, a negotiation between users and the designers of the technology will result in its particular form and function. This article considers a side effect of these negotiations. When a certain known technology is used to convey a new technological concept or model, there is a risk that the paradigm associated by the users with the known technology will eclipse the new model and its affordances in part or in whole. The article presents a case study of this ‘paradigmatic regression’ centering on a transcription tool of the Huygens Institute in the Netherlands. It is argued that similar effects also come into play at a larger scale within the field of textual scholarship, inhibiting the exploration of the affordances of new models that do not adhere to the pervasive digital metaphor of the codex. An example of such an innovative model, the knowledge graph model, is briefly introduced to illustrate the point.

  • Digital scholarly editing within the boundaries of copyright restrictions
    • Authors: Dillen W; Neyt V.
      Abstract: One of the great advantages the digital medium has to offer the field of scholarly editing is that it makes its products much easier to distribute. No longer bound to a shelf, the Digital Scholarly Edition has the potential to reach a much wider audience than a printed edition could. To a certain extent, however, the nature of the materials textual scholars are working with dictates the perimeters within which this dissemination can take place. When working with modern manuscripts, for instance, copyright restrictions may limit the extent to which a project can distribute its resources. In an academic climate where open access is not only becoming a standard, but in some cases even a requirement for receiving funding, such limitations may be perceived as problematic. In this article, we argue that even within the boundaries of copyright restrictions there can still be room to produce and distribute the results of textual scholarship. Therefore, the article zooms in on the way in which different Digital Scholarly Editions of copyrighted materials deal with this issue, using the Beckett Digital Manuscript Project (BDMP; www.beckettarchive.org) and Woolf Online (www.woolfonline.com) as case studies. To conclude, we investigate other strategies that may be used to share as much research data as we are allowed to, e.g. by sharing metadata and ancillary data, or by using the fair use doctrine to circumvent the problem. Case studies used for this aspect of the article include ModNets (www.modnets.org), the BDMP Encoding Manual (www.beckettarchive.org/encodingmanual), the Lexicon of Scholarly Editing (http://uahost.uantwerpen.be/lse), and the Finnegans Wake Extensible Elucidation Treasury (FWEET; www.fweet.org).

  • The Grub Street Project: A digital social edition of London in the long
           18th century
    • Authors: Muri A; Nygren C, Neudorf B.
      Abstract: This article suggests that Jerome McGann’s proposal for social text editing can be applied to editions understood not as one author’s works, but rather as networks of publications by many authors and editors. The ability to create such an edition has been hampered in the past by the inability of HTML to express the semantic richness of TEI XML. However, by adopting the new semantic tags, custom data attributes, and schema.org microdata introduced with HTML5, an interoperable digital social edition can be feasible. The Grub Street Project, an edition of books, pamphlets, and data from 18th-century London, is a test of this premise.

  • Documentation for the public: Social editing in The Walt Whitman Archive
    • Authors: Meiman M.
      Abstract: As digital literary collections continue to expand their scope and to broaden their audience, documenting the collaborative editorial work involved in creating these collections—and rendering that documentation transparent for its users—ensures that scholars continue to develop the idea (and reality) of the ‘social text’ envisioned by D. F. McKenzie. By documenting their collaborative editorial practices in a digital environment, scholarly editors help instantiate both the material history and the authorial, literary, and social contexts of a particular text. By rendering these collaborative practices visible, they make digital collections dynamic and usable for a wide range of individuals. The Walt Whitman Archive (WWA) serves as an ideal case study for examining the ways this particular collection intermediates scholarly editorial practices within a collaborative digital environment, as well as conventions of a scholarly edition and an archive. Through its collaborative editorial practices and guidelines, its layout and design, and its detailed documentation about its conditions of use for the general public, the WWA at once renders more visible the iterative process involved in editorial work, and makes the publicly accessible documentation of that process part of its infrastructure.

  • Archiving, editing, and reading on the AustESE Workbench: Assembling and
           theorizing an ontology-based electronic scholarly edition of Joseph
           Furphy’s Such is Life
    • Authors: Osborne R; Gerber A, Hunter J.
      Abstract: This essay presents a case study that considers the motivations and needs of a scholarly edition of Joseph Furphy’s Australian novel Such is Life in conjunction with the requirements for the development of the Australian Electronic Scholarly Editing Workbench. The latter integrates a suite of eResearch tools to support the collaborative authoring and management of electronic scholarly editions. The discussion focuses on the theoretical and practical implications of building an electronic edition in such an environment and considers the ways in which the product of these activities begins to move beyond the model of the book.

  • Archiving, editing, and reading on the AustESE Workbench: Assembling and
           theorizing an ontology-based electronic scholarly edition of Joseph
           Furphy’s Such is Life
    • Authors: Osborne R; Gerber A, Hunter J.
      Abstract: This essay presents a case study that considers the motivations and needs of a scholarly edition of Joseph Furphy’s Australian novel Such is Life in conjunction with the requirements for the development of the Australian Electronic Scholarly Editing Workbench. The latter integrates a suite of eResearch tools to support the collaborative authoring and management of electronic scholarly editions. The discussion focuses on the theoretical and practical implications of building an electronic edition in such an environment and considers the ways in which the product of these activities begins to move beyond the model of the book. Central to the discussion is the idea of an ontology-based electronic edition, not as an end in itself, but as the ongoing activity of one or more human beings contributing to the creation and assembly of constituent parts with digital tools.

  • Towards sentiment analysis for historical texts
    • Authors: Sprugnoli R; Tonelli S, Marchetti A, et al.
      Abstract: This article presents the integration of sentiment analysis in ALCIDE, an online platform for historical content analysis. A prior polarity approach has been applied to a corpus of Italian historical texts, and a new lexical resource has been developed with a semi-automatic mapping starting from two English lexica. This article also reports on a first experiment on contextual polarity using both expert annotators and crowdsourced contributors. The long-term goal of our research is to create a system to support historical studies, which is able to analyse the sentiment in historical texts and to discover the opinion about a topic and its change over time.

  • Vive la différence : Tracing the (authorial) gender signal by
           multivariate analysis of word frequencies
    • Authors: Rybicki J.
      Abstract: Multivariate analysis of word frequencies is used to identify the gender of authors in a corpus of 18th- and early 19th-century English sentimentalist and Gothic fiction. Results obtained with most frequent words are compared to those produced with medium-frequency Burrows's Zeta words characteristic for both genders. Gender-sensitive words from two periods (18th/19th c. and 19th/20th c.) are compared in terms of their usefulness for gender identification in literary texts.

  • Developing a framework for an advisory message board for female victims
           after disasters: A case study after east Japan great earthquake
    • Authors: Hashimoto T; Shirota Y, Chakraborty B.
      Abstract: After the sudden occurrence of East Japan Great Earthquake on 11 March 2011, triple disasters crippled the regular life of citizens of East Japan. A lot of people were affected, especially women victims suffered from different problems and worries: they had to care for elders, raise children, and find new jobs. Women also had specific needs of commodities for everyday life. Administrative authorities wanted to recognize women victims’ specific problems and provide them appropriate supports. However, it was difficult to grasp women victims’ requirements properly, because they were really patient and their needs were sometimes neglected under the environmental pressure. Conducting interviews and taking questionnaire from women victims is one way to gauge their needs, but it is time-consuming and labor intensive. This work proposes a framework for the development of an advisory message board for women victims on the web in which women victims can post their messages freely. The computational technologies are used here for analyzing digital media data in order to improve the lives of underserved or underprivileged people in case of disasters like earthquake. Text mining technologies are developed for automatic analysis of the messages to find out the specific needs of the victims and the change of needs with time and support them with proper advice. The proposed method uses latent semantic analysis (LSA) to extract the hidden topics and change of topics over time. As a case study, text messages from several on-line social media over a period of 2 years after the East Japan Great earthquake are collected and analyzed. It has been found that LSA-based technique is more effective in extracting the change of needs over time than graph-based topic extraction method. The final aim of this work is to develop the framework of advisory message board for women which will help the authority to find out the special needs of women victims after any future disaster and support them.

  • Deaf sentences 1 over Ukraine: Mysticism versus ethics
    • Authors: Hogenraad RL.
      Abstract: We look to unlock the verbal code of President Putin and NATO Secretary-General Rasmussen during the Ukrainian crisis. On 18 March 2014, referring to the medieval history of Russia, Putin expressed a vision that invites to explore the role of ancestral mental images as an instance of people with a direct knowledge of spiritual truth. Looking for spiritual truth is often at the edge of words, forcing the speaker to resort to poetic language to convey an inspired message beyond common understanding. Using a fragment of Martindale’s creativity model, we look for indicators of insight (regressive thought, metaphors, dual-coding of images and emotions) in Putin’s and NATO’s speeches over a short take of recent history, December 2013–September 2014. Among obvious results, the annexing of Crimea to the Russian Federation (18 March 2014) sparked new words in both Putin’s and NATO’s speeches. The May 9 ‘Great Victory Day’ also affected Putin’s speeches. After May 9, a visible discontinuity marks the speeches of both Putin and NATO, but in opposite directions. Higher scores of metaphoric thought in Putin contrasts with lower scores in NATO. Finally, the threat index increases moderately in both cases, yet bears no strong relation to the ups or downs of visionary metaphoric thought in either Putin or NATO. The two corpuses contain the words ‘value’ and ‘border’ in plenty, pushing linguistic detection scholars to explore new frontiers.

  • Zonal text processing
    • Authors: Yatsko V.
      Abstract: The article describes methodology of zonal text processing based on interpretation of Bradford's law in terms of geometric progression. The methodology involves dividing the text into three zones (J0, J1, J2) and finding their composition. To verify the value of Bradford multiplier two methods that evaluate distribution of stop words across the three zones are used. The concept of zonal-correlational processing that implies contrastive analysis of J1 zones of two or more texts for the purpose of authorship attribution and classification is formulated and tested. To address the problem of difference in text sizes the concept of logarithmic equalizing is proposed.

  • Words, words. They’re all we have to go on: Image finding without
           the pictures
    • Authors: Brown S.
      Abstract: This article describes a Recommendation System to help photographic historians make connections between widely dispersed and previously unrelated records of photographs held in different heritage institutions, and demonstrates how it has been used to rediscover images of exhibits from the Royal Photographic Society annual exhibitions of over 120 years ago. While the surviving exhibition catalogues are a rich information source, they are largely devoid of illustrations of the exhibits. The FuzzyPhoto project has developed techniques for analyzing a corpus of more than 1.4 million historical photographic records across different galleries, libraries, archives, and museums, in order to identify similarities between them and used the results to offer visitors to those sites links to potentially related items at other sites, thus creating a web of interconnections between them. The article describes techniques used for data acquisition, cleaning, integration, semantic-based data mining, approximate reasoning, and fuzzy algorithm-based similarity metrics. It compares the approach described here with manual searches and more sophisticated computational methods such as linked data and concludes that FuzzyPhoto is an effective method for dealing with the realities of messy collection records that could be extended to other types of archival objects such as paintings, maps, and textiles where record matching is required.

  • Profile-based authorship analysis
    • Authors: Dunn J; Argamon S, Rasooli A, et al.
      Abstract: This article presents a profile-based authorship analysis method which first categorizes texts according to social and conceptual characteristics of their author (e.g. Sex and Political Ideology) and then combines these profiles for two authorship analysis tasks: (1) determining shared authorship of pairs of texts without a set of candidate authors and (2) clustering texts according to characteristics of their authors in order to provide an analysis of the types of individuals represented in the data set. The first task outperforms Burrows’ Delta by a wide margin on short texts and a small margin on long texts. The second task has no such benchmark with existing methods. The data set for evaluating the method consists of speeches from the US House and Senate from 1995 to 2013. This data set contains both a large number of texts (42,000 in the test sets) and a large number of speakers (over 800). The article shows that this approach to authorship analysis is more accurate than existing approaches given a data set with hundreds of authors. Further, this profile-based method makes new types of analysis possible by looking at types of individuals as well as at specific individuals.
