ANVC Receives NEH Digital Humanities Implementation Grant

 

We are proud to announce that The Alliance for Networking Visual has been awarded a Digital Humanities Implementation Grant from the Office of Digital Humanities at the National Endowment for the Humanities.

This grant will fund the Alliance, in partnership with Critical Commons, Hypothes.is, and the University of California Press, for a two-year project to implement workflow features into Scalar aimed at further facilitating the publication of multimedia digital works within both established and emerging publishing genres.

With this grant we plan to integrate directly into the Scalar environment a suite of editorial, review and copyediting tools necessary for edited and peer-reviewed publications; the enhanced integration of Scalar with our partner media archive Critical Commons to create a reliable and easy-to-use system for uploading and embedding image files and video clips while maximizing the protections of fair use for scholars and publishers; and continued improvements of our authoring environment to better leverage the enhanced features and look of our soon-to-be released reader interface towards scalable yet customizable publications.

We’d like to thank everyone at the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities for their generous support and for the opportunity to develop Scalar to these ends.
