As part of the EU HIRMEOS project, OpenEdition is offering a new feature, annotations, and launching a post-publication open peer review experiment.
Hypothes.is is a tool that allows you to leave annotations, i.e. line-by-line comments linked to a specific passage of text.
Publishers on OpenEdition Books can activate this tool by default on the web pages of their publications. Activation is possible at several levels (chapter, work, series). Readers can then access the tool directly from the chapter’s web page. They benefit from the various features offered by Hypothes.is (annotations, highlights, page notes, responses to annotations) at several levels: privately (personal use) or shared in public groups.
Publishers interested in activating Hypothes.is on their content can contact us at the following address: email@example.com
Users who wish to get help learning to use the tool can consult our user guide.
Open peer review experiment
As part of this implementation, OpenEdition Books coordinated a post-publication open peer review experiment from February to June 2019.
The aim was to create a space for scientific conversation around the selected publications, involving readers in a direct scientific communication process.
For more information on this experiment, please see the post on Open Electronic Publishing: Open annotations: Call for participation
