Abstract

The Digital Scholarly Edition sits at an intriguing cross-section within the academic landscape. While its analogue counterpart, the Scholarly Edition, is primarily written for a fairly specialised audience, the Digital Scholarly Edition is, by the nature of its distribution model, open to the general public. For the first time in the history of Scholarly Editing, these editions – once of interest to a fairly small subset of academics – are now available to everyone, both within and outside of traditional academia, as the internet provides them with a free (or in some cases, low cost) access model. While the Digital Scholarly Edition has adopted many metaphors from the traditional analogue Scholarly Edition (such as the footnote, index, and table of contents), these metaphors are often implemented in a literal fashion without concern for how they can evolve in a digital space. Drawing on the work of noted experts in the field of Interaction Design and Information Architecture, these interactions, along with additional interaction techniques, will be discussed in an effort to support new, digital modes of reading. A blended approach of the traditional interaction metaphors with newer metaphors will be advocated in order to support the forward momentum of the Digital Scholarly Edition and digital scholarship as a whole.
