Oxford University Press has launched a digital version of the Oxford Handbooks Online and Oxford Reference in a new resource called Oxford Scholarly Editions Online. This new initiative launches with 171 editions of works written by authors primarily active between 1485 and 1660, and the original texts of about 12,000 works, which include 200 plays, some 7000 poems, and over 5000 letters. Famous works by Shakespeare are included in this new online resource.

This interesting news was found on Knowledgespeak in their article, “Oxford University Press expands digital publishing programme, launches Oxford Scholarly Editions Online.” This is an impressive move from a very traditional academic icon.
