The Medieval Academy of America is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Digital Latin Library (DLL). This partnership demonstrates the Academy’s support of DLL’s open-access publishing model – in which text, apparatus, and image are made interoperable – and is in keeping with the Medieval Academy of America’s long-standing commitment to high-quality Latin editions. We offer this online platform in addition to our ongoing printed series Medieval Academy Books. The Medieval Academy of America will oversee the vetting and approval of DLL editions of medieval Latin texts, while the Digital Latin Library will facilitate XML encoding and online hosting. Vetted online editions will carry the imprimatur of the Medieval Academy of America and should be considered of equal status to similarly-vetted printed editions in application, promotion, or tenure dossiers.
The MAA’s Digital Humanities and Multimedia Studies Committee has established procedures and policies for the vetting and approval of DLL editions of medieval Latin texts, and we welcome the submission of pre-proposals. For information and guidelines, please visit our website or contact the MAA Executive Director.
