As was already announced on the Society’s Twitter and Facebook pages, we are happy to present the research community with a new issue of Variants, the annual, peer-reviewed journal of The European Society for Textual Scholarship!
Variants 14 is the second issue in the series that is published in Open Access via the OpenEdition platform (previously revues.org) at https://journals.openedition.org/variants. The issues was edited by Wim Van Mierlo, Wout Dillen, and Elli Bleeker – with Stefano Rosignoli functioning as the issue’s Review Editor.
With the publication of this issue, Wim has now officially resigned from his position as the General Editor of Variants, passing his duties on to Wout (as General Editor) and Elli (as Associate Editor). The new editors wish to thank Wim for his long and much appreciated service on the issue’s editorial board, and for his efforts (together with Aurélien Berra) to make the journal more accessible to the general public by moving it to an Open Access publication venue.
We look forward to presenting the issue at the 2019 edition of our annual conference (28-29 November 2017) – where we will also invite our Members (and other textual scholars and scholarly editors) to submit a paper for Variants 15. We hope to see you there!
