Charts: Scholarly Editions

The following diagrams are based on the reviews of all issues on Scholarly Editions published to date. The sample, of course, is still too small to allow for significant insights. The data from which these diagrams were generated has been extracted from the factsheets that accompany each review at RIDE. For a complete list of all data gathered for each review, see the questionnaire. The results of the questionnaire are contained in the TEI header of each review. You can download individual TEI files, the TEI files of whole RIDE issues, or a summary of all the questionnaire results on GitHub.
