Digital research and editing environments workshop 2

One of the first posts on this blog discussed our planned workshop on what we have been calling Digital Research and Editing Environments (or DREE). It was held almost a month ago, on 7 July, and proved to be a fascinating and thought-provoking event. Parts of the workshop were live-streamed, and you can watch both the opening panel discussion and the final round up session at We are very grateful indeed to Philip Schofield, Mark Hedges and Rob Iliffe for their presentations on the Bentham Project, TextVRE and the Newton Papers Project respectively.

In the intervening weeks we have been sifting through the dominant themes and ideas that emerged during the workshop's 'Ideas Cafe'. Following the main panel session, the delegates divided into four groups, each of which was charged with focusing on a particular question, whether authorship, skills and training, ongoing engagement or the wider research ecosystem. The discussions have been summarised in a short paper published in SAS-Space, the School of Advanced Study's e-repository ( We hope that this will be the first of a series of meetings looking at digital editing and the tools that are being developed to support it.
