Doing Digital Scholarship: Principles & Practices, Tools & Resources
The tools and resources for conducting scholarship across disciplines in the humanities and social sciences (HSS) have expanded almost exponentially during the past decade. Instructional materials for ‘doing scholarship’ in a digital and networked environment have not kept pace with these developments. In this presentation I will outline a textbook being prepared for Polity Press about these developments. Sample materials from the textbook Doing Digital Scholarship (e.g., introductory chapter, tool descriptions, student exercises, overview of resources, outline of concluding epilogue) will be made available on a closed-access website prior to the presentation (the URL for this material will be distributed a week prior to this Research Meeting). I will also consider how this relatively conventional printed textbook will be complemented by a website reflecting some features of an enhanced publication.
