Electronic Scholarly Editions of Literary Works on the Web a study of hypertextuality, interactivity and hypermediality. (English)
Abstract [en]

The objective of this thesis is to examine which form value-adding qualities specific for the Web take and to what extent they exist in a selection of electronic scholarly editions of literary works. The examination was concentrated on the qualities hypertextuality, interactivity and hypermediality. Besides extent and form, the research questions focused on whether or not the form of the editions correspond to theories and guidelines about how electronic scholarly editions should be designed to generate an added value from a scholarly point of view. The empirical approach was qualitative and the selection consisted of 31 editions. They were examined according to theories about the value-adding features of the qualities. The results showed that a majority of the editions did not incorporate all of the value-adding aspects. It was mainly the ability to use hyperlinks to bring larger amount of material together, and the use of links to show inter- and intratextual relations, that was realised. Only a minority of the editions exploited the possibilities of interactivity, especially the ability to read and give user comments within the editions. The conclusion of this study shows that the electronic editions seem to reproduce features of the printed media and do not fulfil the potential of the Web in any larger extent.
