After two days’ hard work, Sandra Jamieson and I have published a website for the Citation Project. We’ll work with design over the weeks to come, but all the basic pages are up. We’re hoping that the site offers reasonably succinct explanations of what the research is, why we’re doing it, who’s involved, and so forth.
As the site explains, we have a report of the preliminary research that will be published in Writing and Pedagogy. Yet the website feels even more of a milestone. We’ve come far enough that we’re able to explain the project with enough specificity and brevity that a website is possible, and that’s a huge accomplishment.
As the website also explains, there are a number of people involved in the research. Sandra and I are the principal researchers, the ones responsible for the overall design and momentum. But lots of people are already involved, as contributing coders of text, as site hosts, and as leaders of ancillary inquiry.
More to come! Check out the site, and let us know what you think.
