Scholarly digital editing and analysis of literary material has been foremost an institutional practice. International cooperation consists mainly of exchanging research results and advancing methodology through conferences and journals. But a shared technical infrastructure for the preparation, editing, publishing, analysis and visualization of literary material does not exist â€“ and thereâ€™s little international endeavor to develop such an infrastructure. This Action aims to form an international Management Committee of researchers that have a thorough experience in electronic editing and digital text analysis for scholarly purposes in national context. A series of meetings will be called for researchers in the field of literary research and IT to meet on the topic of a shared supranational networked infrastructure for digital scholarly editing and analysis. The Action will deliver a roadmap for the implementation of such an infrastructure.
