Introducing Hypothes.is

Interested in open access, scholarly communication, the digital humanities, or all of the above? If the answer is yes, consider attending the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH) lecture, “Introducing Hypothes.is”.

According to the Hypothes.is website, it will be an, “”An open platform for the collaborative evaluation of knowledge. It will combine sentence-level critique with community peer-review to provide commentary, references, and insight on top of news, blogs, scientific articles, books, terms of service, ballot initiatives, legislation and regulations, software code and more.” The platform is based in standards for annotating digital documents developed by the Open Annotation Collaboration.

Given that Hypothes.is founder Dan Whaley will deliver the lecture, this presents a golden opportunity to learn about this platform firsthand.

“Introducing Hypothes.is” will be held on October 7 at 4:30 PM in Room 1092 of Lincoln Hall.
