Wide Audiences

stoa.org

The accessibility of scholarly materials to wide public audiences may be enhanced in a variety of ways, including:

  • clear, concise, and well-organized writing

  • an initial outline, overview, or abstract of the author's argument or purposes, supplemented by waypoints within the document itself

  • well-designed hypertextual links to other electronic resources that provide essential explanations, background information, or supporting data

  • the strategic use of multimedia aids such as images, maps, diagrams and other drawings, sound files, QTVR clips, VRML models, etc.
The Stoa will not enforce any single approach to accessibility, but will promote the judicious combination of these techniques as warranted by particular projects and circumstances.
