The first two documents produced during our 2011 NINES / NEH Summer Institute on Evaluating Digital Scholarship have been released: a Statement on Authorship and a set of Recommendations for Chairs of Language and Literature Departments for creating an atmosphere that is conducive to work in new media. We have others in the pipeline and will be releasing them in the coming months. We welcome readers’ feedback!
The Call for Proposals and Participants in our 2012 Summer Institute has also been announced, with a special emphasis on the participation of department chairs. We’ll be revisiting the 2011 documents and refining them, and hopefully creating more guidelines for evaluating digital scholarship.
