Following our work on visual interactive workflow, our current phase of the project focused on the creation and customization of workflows. While in the previous version we used a pre-defined workflow structure, the new version, which we called Wrkflux, allows users to create and design their own workflows. By adding this functionality, we are looking for other forms that workflows can be used, such as management processes, editorial processes, personal organization, mind mapping, and even for board game prototypes.

Workflow Interface for Editorial Process

Scholars usually have to deal with many different types of documents spread in various stages, especially in the case of big projects. Piles and piles of documents scattered in many folders waiting for tagging, revision, approval or whatever it is that needs to be completed. There are workflow management tools available to help us, but they often are too specialized and somewhat complex to use. So, how can we make them easier and more flexible?

Designing Interactive Reading Environments for the Online Scholarly Edition

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.
