Hugh Cayless, Critical Editions and the Data Model as Interface

Critical editions of classical text pose some unique problems that highlight the importance of the editor?s contribution to the creation of the edition. The article discusses the issues involved in creating these editions and proposes a method for creating digital critical editions that foregrounds the edition's data model, thereby enabling an intuitive and powerful interface for reading digital critical editions online. It presents the results of experiments with this method that are being undertaken by the Digital Latin Library project, a joint effort of the Society for Classical Studies, the Medieval Academy of America, and the Renaissance Society of America.
