As of August 2017, DiXiT has come to its official end. A volume of extended abstracts has been published by Sidestone Press, detailing the research and projects presented at the three major DiXiT conventions. (For more information and to read the volume online, visit https://www.sidestone.com/books/advances-in-digital-scholarly-editing).

Time to look back: After four years, the DiXiT fellows shared their final reports on their blog. Some numbers and facts about the project can be found in the infographic below.

We want to thank everyone who was involved in the project and contributed to its success. The network of researchers and scholars that was formed during this time will continue to collaborate and advance the important issue that was at the heart of DiXiT: Studying, preserving and disseminating textual cultural heritage in the digital age.


Survey on Inclusivity in Digital Scholarly Editions

Some of our DiXiT fellows are looking for participants in a survey on Inclusive Design and Dissemination of Digital Scholarly Editions and how these issues affect scholarly editors, information professionals and computer scientists. The results of the survey will be presented as part of the DiXiT Panel Design and Dissemination of Digital Editions at the Digital Humanities annual conference in Montreal.
You can fill out the survey here.
25 digital Amazon gift cards in denominations of $20/€20 will be given to 25 randomly selected respondents who complete the survey.
All responses will be kept anonymous. If you have any questions about how the data we collect will be used, please do not hesitate to contact Merisa Martinez at Merisa.martinez@hb.se

DiXiT Farewell Event / Meeting with CIDOC-CRM

In the last week of their DiXiT fellowships the fellows (together with supervisors and admin staff) met in Heraklion on Crete. In addition to celebrating and looking back on the accomplishments of their fellowships, the group also spent a day at the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) and exchanged ideas with the researchers behind the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM).

The presentations from this meeting can be found in our Course Materials
