Welcome to the SCTA Community Page. The community posts articles here to help people at all levels understand how to contribute and benefit from the SCTA. Whether you're interested in preparing an edition of a scholastic text for print, web, or both, or are looking to build a new application using the SCTA APIs, or are interested in using the SCTA for corpus and linguistic analysis, you'll find articles here to help get you started.
The SCTA began as a way to connect highly related data sets pertaining to scholastic research separated by silos of traditional publication and research methods. The goal is to create a distributed network that allows each research group to preserve their automony and independence, while at the same time constructing avenues for collaboration and data sharing with other groups. In this way, each research group can enrich the work of other groups and in turn be enriched by the growth of the globally connected data set.
If you are working on anything related to scholasticism broadly conceived, we invite your contributions. Whatever level you are at, whatever you're working on — if you're willing to learn new research methods and editing tools -- there is a way for you to contribute.
