OpenTexts

OpenTexts is an experimental service that provides free & open access to the digitised text collections.

OpenTexts.World is a search engine collating the digitised records of many different libraries worldwide. Clicking a record’s title will take you to a third-party site for that particular record. If you want to return to your search, use your browser’s back button to return to OpenTexts.

Hypergraph

Hypergraph helps researchers reset research publishing, by publicly documenting research step by step, before the issues of after-the-fact articles even begin. Traditionally, articles are often written in hindsight, causing selective publication, p-hacking, and many other issues.

In Hypergraph, you only have to indicate what step you’re taking, link it to the step(s) it follows from, add relevant files, and indicate what file you want people to see first. This means that you can share all kinds of steps in your research—the theory, predictions, transcripts, materials, code, data, results (and more). Plus, you can share files such as Jupyter notebooks, scripts, data files, videos, audio files, text, and any other open file format.

When you share your latest research step, your peers can immediately see it, link next steps to it, and help you improve it. You share when you’re ready.

Prism

Prism is a tool for collective interpretation, an experiment in crowd-sourcing and visualizing many readings of a set of common texts. As part of our project to make crowd-sourcing more meaningful and less mechanical, users interact subjectively with a text, highlighting it in accordance with certain interpretive categories, such as sound, sense, and modernism, to produce an aggregate visualization of all other users’ markings that shows points of analytical agreement or disagreement.

The basic workflow is simple:

  1. Play in the sandbox on our introductory text to practice using the highlighting functionality.
  2. After creating an account, choose a text to highlight.
  3. The highlighting page automatically starts with the first category selected. Simply click and drag over the desired text to change its color. To switch categories, simple click on the desired category. Click on the eraser tool and then click and drag over text to undo any unwanted highlights.
  4. When done, click the submit button to see a visualization.
  5. To switch to the visualization for a different category, simply click on a different category.

Prism is an ideal tool for research and pedagogy alike; students can highlight a text and discuss their markings in class, and scholars can see how the world at large views these texts.
