Community Meetings

In April 2021 e-editions will launch a series of regular community meetings that will be held on the first Tuesday of each month at 17:00 CET/CEST.

The objective of these meetings is to give the community a space to discuss topics and present their editions, projects, and solutions.

As for the format, a short presentation (10-20 minutes) of the topic or the project will be followed by an open discussion. Meetings will last one hour.

The community meetings will be held online and will not be recorded:

We warmly invite you to propose topics for the following community meetings dates.

Maria Niku, Tiedekustantamo, Suomalaisen Kirjallisuuden Seura – Finnish Literature Society

The Finnish Literature Society ( publishes open access scholarly digital editions of archival material as well as digital critical editions of printed works.

Published edition links:

The former is in Finnish only, the latter in Finnish and Swedish, but we’ll be adding English to the latter in April

2021-06-01: FairCopy

Nick Laiacona, President Performant Software Solutions

FairCopy is a specialized word processor for studying manuscripts and historical texts. It gives scholars a desktop editing environment to create TEI encoded texts without writing XML code. In this demonstration, we will explore what sorts of editions you can build using FairCopy and how it can fit into a larger ecosystem of tools leveraging TEI XML.
