Implementing Scalar for Digital Humanities Multimodal Online Publishing: Editorial and Authorial Workflow in Collaboration

The enhancement of the authoring, editing, and peer review features of the Scalar scholarly publishing platform from the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture.

With the release of Scalar 1.0, an open-source online authoring platform for humanities scholarship, we propose to implement three important editorial and authorial workflow features that will facilitate the publication of digital multimedia works within both established and emerging scholarly genres: 1) the integration directly into the Scalar environment of full review, author revision, version-control, copyediting, and proofreading processes necessary for edited and peer-reviewed publications; 2) enhanced integration of Scalar with our partner media archive Critical Commons to create an easy-to-use system for uploading and embedding image files and video clips while maximizing the protections of fair use for scholars and presses; 3) continued improvements of our authoring environment to better leverage the enhanced features and updated styling of our new reader interface towards scalable, customizable publications.
