Visualizing digital scholarly editions
For a curated list of digital editions past and present, two main data sources are available: Patrick Sahle lists around 700 editions in a curated catalog (Sahle, n.d.), while the Catalogue of Digital Editions features about 320 digital editions in a database (Franzini 2012). Both sources have different criteria for inclusion, overlap in content and differ in granularity, yet these are the sources from which a history of digital scholarly editions will mostly draw. The visualizations presented here are primarily concerned with change over time in the field of digital editions and aim to identify characteristics and trends in the field.
