Open Editions

Literature lovers may enjoy Open Editions, a site providing "open-source electronic scholarly editions of public domain literature." Guided by the "principles of the Free and Open Source Software movement," the platform is dedicated to accessibility and accuracy. Not only does Open Editions make texts freely available to readers, but the site also "aim[s] to aggregate the literary knowledge that surrounds a text, codify that knowledge, and integrate it into the text." The work of Open Editions is a community effort and, as the site notes, "anyone can contribute ... and help improve the texts in it. No prior experience with programming is necessary." Those looking to participate should explore the Contribute page, which provides instructions for both beginners and advanced users. On the Texts page, readers can explore several classics from Irish novelist James Joyce such as A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses. All of the site's content is accessible through a Creative Commons license.
