a catalog of Digital Scholarly Editions

v.4.112 2020ff, edited by Patrick Sahle et al., last change 2024-06-06

The catalog contains single editions. Occasionally, scholarly editions are part of larger projects or they are impacted by the software and publication platform which they are based on. As this catalog is mainly a showcase for methodological innovation in the field of critical editing, it would be redundant to describe all editions from these sets of similar solutions. Sometimes, we will have catalog entries for single examples but if you are looking for a complete overview on digital scholarly editions or for more generic approaches and solutions you may want to consider the following list of edition platforms.
