Ksenia Zaytseva, Sonia Theodoridou

Abstract


Annotating is one of the most primitive scholarly activities. However with the latest development of web technologies and especially Semantic web technologies there are new evolving forms of annotation and possible new benefits which annotation can contribute. Current study aims to explore how digital humanities use annotation in digital world, how the way of annotation application in digital context reflects scholars habits to annotate printed documents, what issues scholars encounter in using digital annotation,  what anticipations and preferences scholars have regarding the future development of annotation tools.
