Abstract

Not much of the editorial process of creating digital scholarly editions is automated or assisted by computer tools. Existing tools are hard to combine in a coherent workflow. This paper discusses several challenges of collaborative editorial projects dealing with many manuscript witnesses and proposes the adoption of a shared formalization describing the editorial process. The use of a shared formalization will allow the whole editorial process to be semi-automated, with positive repercussions on the workload of the editors and on the quality and verifiability of the edition itself.
