DigitalKoans Marked 16 Years of Publication This Month

On April 20, 2005, I launched DigitalKoans with this post. To date, there have been slightly over 12,300 DigitalKoans posts (about 3,750 posts were job ads). That date also marked the launch of the broader Digital Scholarship website, which, like DigitalKoans, covers digital copyright, digital curation, digital repository, open access, research data management, scholarly communication, and other digital information issues.

Below is a list of Digital Scholarship publications, and here is a link to reviews of these publications.
