The READ project now has a new partner which will investigate how Transkribus can be used in digital scholarly editing.
The Institute for Documentology and Scholarly Editing (IDE) is the latest institution to join the READ network as a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) partner. Based in Germany, the IDE is a network of scholars who research the ways in which digital methods can be applied to historical documents. The IDE has a rich knowledge of digital editions and produces the RIDE journal to review such resources.
The IDE will be testing out the Transkribus platform and providing feedback on how it can support the creation of digital editions using basic TEI standards.
