Call for Reviews: Digital Text Collections

Ulrike Henny

Dear members of the TEI community,

the Institute for Documentology and Scholarly Editing (IDE) is calling for reviews for a special issue of the journal RIDE, dedicated to Digital Text Collections in the Humanities.

For this RIDE issue, we are inviting reviews of digital text collections from all humanities disciplines: literature, linguistics, philosophy, religious studies, historical sciences and others. The term “text collection” is used in a broad sense here and includes all kinds of text sets, including for instance linguistic corpora and digital archives.

To guide reviewers through the review process and to create a framework for the evaluation of digital text collections, we provide Criteria for Reviewing Digital Text Collections that are supposed to be applicable to various types of humanities text collections. The guidelines (Version 1.0) can be found here:

Reviews are accepted in English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish. The length of the review can vary depending on how much the resource offers that is worthy of discussion (approximately 1000-3000 words).

For this special issue, reviews will be accepted until April 10th, 2017. We kindly ask you to email us beforehand at [hidden email] with a suggestion which resource you would like to review and with a short explanation of your affiliation and area of expertise.

More information about RIDE, the special issue on digital text collections and suggestions for collections to review can be found at

Best wishes,

Ulrike Henny and Frederike Neuber
