About the centre:

The Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing is founded on the premise that computer methods are now fundamental to every stage of the editorial process. We use digital tools to locate and view the original materials; to transcribe them into electronic form; to compare the texts and to analyze the patterns of variation; and we publish them electronically. We are the home of two major projects built to this formula: the St John's Gospel editions led by David Parker, and the Canterbury Tales Project, led by Barbara Bordalejo and Peter Robinson.

Services provided: 
Creation of scholarly editions in digital form, particularly of works in many versions; large scale digitization of manuscript materials; development of software for scholarly editing
