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.

PubPub

PubPub is a platform that enables the exploration of three core experiments: 1) author-driven publishing, 2) distributed and dynamic peer review, and 3) grassroots journals that serve as tools for curation. Through these three experiments, we seek to uncover new paths and opportunities for collaborative publishing.

meTypeset

meTypeset is a tool to covert from Microsoft Word .docx format to NLM/JATS-XML for scholarly/scientific article typesetting.

meTypeset is a fork of the OxGarage stack and uses TEI as an intemediary format to facilitate interchange. Components are licensed under the GPL v2 and the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike 3.0 clauses, according to the various original sources of the fork.

The transforms within this software can be invoked in several different ways:

  1. Run through a *nix compatible command line with the bin/meTypeset.py script.
  2. A limited set of the transforms can be called through any renderer capable of parsing XSLT 1.0. This will not include the meTypeset classifier stages.

The modfications to the OxGarage stack contained within this project are Copyright Martin Paul Eve 2014 and released under the licenses specified in each respective file.
