On Annotation

  • As a key scholarly activity, annotation seems to have transitioned seamlessly from print to digital. In the process, it has lost many of the shackles of the print medium: limitations of length or of a single perspective and perceived authority, are no longer an issue. Embracing a multi-faceted annotation approach brings its own challenges, however, it forces the editor to think systematically about the form, purpose, and audience of his annotations, and how he can facilitate, mediate, and communicate the process.
