“While digital dissertations have been around for many years, the processes by which they are defined, created and defended remain something of a mystery. Is an interactive PDF significantly different from its paper-based counterpart? What specific possibilities can a digitally networked environment open up that would be impossible in print? How are dissertation committees able to gauge the quality of natively digital work? What support systems and workflows do students need to complete these types of projects? How do digital projects change the ways faculty members advise doctoral students? What are the implications of born-digital dissertations for career choices, hiring potential and work beyond the academy? Shaping the Digital Dissertation: Topics in Knowledge Production, addresses these questions in a book whose chapters explore the larger implications of digital scholarship across institutional, geographic and disciplinary divides.” (Virginia Kuhn and Anke Finger)
