Saving working notes for future use
Scholarly annotated editions of historically important texts constitute an important foundation for understanding history and culture. Their preparation requires a sustained investment of highly specialized expertise and generates a rich corpus of research notes that are mostly not included in the eventual published volumes. Ordinarily these research resources are simply discarded. We examine the challenge of preserving working notes so that they could become the basis for future research and describe a shared website editornotes.org. © 2014 Society for Imaging Science and Technology.
