Digital Humanities in Authorea: New Spaces for Publishing on a Shared Free Platform

Montclair State University - Schmitt Hall 104
1 Normal Avenue
07043 Montclair, NJ
United States

In the course of the Sept. 16 meeting on our campus, Alberto Pepe will illustrate the platform of the startup Authorea that he co-founded in 2014. A group of interested scholars, both from the natural and social sciences as well as the humanities, will have the chance to see how, using the html technology instead of the usual pdf files, Authorea allows to collaboratively write rich data-driven manuscripts on the web. The results are articles that natively offer readers a dynamic, interactive experience with an article's full text, images, data, and code. Thanks to this new concept, Authorea will help scholars of all disciplines pave the road to increased data sharing, data reuse, research reproducibility, and Open Science, just the way Galileo had intended it.
