With EDIT, the Gerda Henkel Foundation...
...provides an online platform for the release of digital publications, which have emerged from funded projects of the Foundation. With the help of EDIT, researchers will be able to publish their research results in the area of the historical humanities quickly and reliably.
EDIT covers not only the monographic part of a publication, but likewise cataloguing and documentation of data collections, such as photos or drawings of archaeological finds, ancient text sources, or historical archive materials. In this way, extensive sets of data and image catalogues can be published that are closely bound up with the written section. The special aspect of this is that for their own studies researchers gain global access to the underlying primary source materials used in a publication. In order to ensure the individual publications are clearly identifiable and citable, all works are given a DOI number of their own.
The individual online publications will be opened via the internet browser and are accompanied by a separate website, on which further information on the respective research project can be found.
