Dear textual scholars,

The Institute for Documentology and Scholarly Editing (IDE) is calling
for reviews for a special issue of the journal RIDE, dedicated to Tools
and Environments for Digital Scholarly Editing (DSE):

To guide reviewers through the review process and to create a structure
for the evaluation, we provide Criteria for Reviewing Digital Tools and
Environments for DSE that are supposed to be applicable to various types
of resources. The guidelines (Version 1.0) can be found here:

Reviews will be accepted until the 31st of May 2019.

We kindly ask you to email us before start reviewing a tool at
ride-tools (at) i-d-e.de with a suggestion of which resource you would
like to review and with a short explanation of your affiliation and area
of expertise. This is important in order to avoid multiple reviews of
the same tool.


In the introduction to his book Software takes command (Bloomsbury
Publishing, 2013) Lev Manovich states that "software has become our
interface to the world, to others, to our memory and our imagination".
Is the same happening in the world of digital scholarly editing?
Certainly we cannot ignore their fundamental role in our daily scholarly
practices and in the interactions with our objects of study. Insofar as
tools shape scholarly editions, they also shape scholarly editing.

A new RIDE issue is devoted to tools for digital scholarly editing. The
aim of this issue is to:

   * contribute to the discussion about tooling in Digital Humanities,
   * bring to the forefront the instruments instead of the final products,
   * provide a venue for discussing best practices in the development and
     usage of tools,
   * list useful resources for all those involved in scholarly editing.

Beyond that, we hope that the critical examination of digital tools
draws greater attention to the (scholarly) achievements that their
creation and maintenance imply.

The journal RIDE was founded in 2014 to "provide a forum in which expert
peers criticise and discuss the efforts of digital editors in order to
improve current practices and advance future developments" (RIDE
Editorial). RIDE is Open Access, reviews are published as HTML and
downloadable as TEI. All reviews will be peer reviewed in order to reach
a high quality level of the evaluations. The special issue on Digital
Tools and Environments for DSE will be edited by Anna-Maria Sichani
(University of Sussex) and Elena Spadini (University of Lausanne).
Submission details

Reviews are accepted in English, French, Italian, and Spanish. The
length of the review can vary depending on how much the resource offers
that is worthy of discussion (approximately 2000-5000 words).

Please submit your review at ride-tools (at) i-d-e.de  as an editable
text file (preferably, but not necessarily docx to facilitate the
conversion to TEI). Please send illustrations as separate image files
(jpg or png) and leave a note in the text as a placeholder for each
image. In addition to the text, we collect keywords. Each review should
be accompanied by a short abstract in English, independently of the
language used in the main text.

For further information please check the general RIDE guidelines and
information on writing and submitting:

The questionnaire mentioned in the submission checklist has been
designed for scholarly digital editions so far. We will keep you
informed about how to proceed with the questionnaire for this special issue.

All reviews will be peer reviewed in order to reach a high quality level
of the evaluations. We believe that this is important because the
evaluation of digital scholarly resources usually requires a double
expertise in digital methods as well as in individual disciplines. This
is also to increase the credit for reviews.
