At Digital Humanities 2012, in Hamburg, Germany, INKE ID team presented the panel “Designing Interactive Reading Environments for the Online Scholarly Edition”. In this panel, members of the Interface Design team of the Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) project presented a set of ideas, designs, and prototypes related to the next generation of the online scholarly edition, by which we mean a primary text and its scholarly apparatus, intended for use by people studying a text.

Geoffrey Rockwell, Stéfan Sinclair, Mihaela Ilovan, Geoff Roeder, and Daniel Sondheim  presented a paper entitled “Designing Interactive Reading Environments for the Online Scholarly Edition” at Digital Humanities 2012 at the University of Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany. It was presented on July 20 2012, and written by Milena Radzikowska, Stan Ruecker, Geoffrey Rockwell, Susan Brown, Luciano Frizzera, and the INKE Research Group.

Members presented a panel entitled “Interface to Interface Research” speaking about year three projects of the ID team. Introductions and conclusions were given by Stan Ruecker, Geoffrey Rockwell, and Milena Radzikowska; Luciano Frizzera spoke about a workflow interface that ID is developing for editorial processes; Jennifer Windsor analyzed and explained the design of scholarly e-readers; Daniel Sondheim compared scholarly editions in print and on the Web; and Geoffrey Rockwell presented RIPr, ID’s rich prospect browser for studying interface design. In another session, Mihaela Ilovan presented a paper on CiteLens, a tool for exploring humanist citation practices by means of visualizations.
