Digital Medievalist

April 21st, 2005 by Ross Scaife

I found the article by Peter Robinson in the inaugural issue of The Digital Medievalist (a new peer-reviewed on-line journal for technology and medieval studies) particularly useful: “Our goal must be to ensure that any scholar able to make an edition in one medium should be able to make an edition in the other. Further, that an edition in either medium should be equally assured of appropriate distribution: just as once a library has bought a print edition it can be used by any member of the library for years to come, so too should it be for electronic editions.”
