A new project was announced that teams NITLE and CLIR to collaborate on a publishing platform for digital humanists. A key component is to address a problem that will continue to exist for some time, the issue of evaluation for promotion and tenure.
"One of Anvil’s goals is to build a peer-review infrastructure for research that cannot be easily represented in text. While the digital humanities are widely considered an important frontier, tenure and promotion committees still have trouble evaluating the work of digital humanists because the format is often so unfamiliar."
