After the TEI Conference in Vienna and the ESTS/DiXiT conference in Antwerp, I am now staying at Gut Siggen for a conference (rather: work session) on digital scholarly publications this week. It took me a while to find a spot with stable internet access between these thick, old walls but finally found it (and luckily, it comes with a comfortable chair).
Although I won’t be able to enjoy it fully since I have to head back to Berlin tomorrow morning, the concept of the seminars held here is in many ways attractive: one week by the sea to talk, argue, discuss one topic with a group of selected people in an enchanting setting…
This afternoon, I will give a short lightning talk on authorship, in which I will try to sum up some of the papers I gave or publications I contributed to in the last couple of months.
One of the first (and so far best) texts I contributed to on the topic of digital scholarly publications was published by the working group on digital publications of the German DH association. You can find the long version of this text here and the short version here; both are in German, I am currently working on an English version of the short one.
Together with my Antwerp paper (which was a longer contribution on the question of authorship as part of a wider overall discussion of efficient settings for a data journal model), my presentation of today is one of these in which I am expecting a lot from the audience’s reaction in order to draft coherent action lines for the future. There will be a follow-up!
