Oxford University Press Launched Oxford Scholarly Editions Online

Sep 06, 2012

Oxford University Press is continuing to expand its digital publishing program this September with the launch of Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (OSEO) and the re-launch of the Oxford Handbooks Online and Oxford Reference.

Oxford Scholarly Editions Online(OSEO) is a new initiative that will bring the collection of Oxford scholarly editions online for the first time. Launching with 171 editions of works written by authors principally active between 1485 and 1660, OSEO will publish the original texts of approximately 12,000 works, which include 200 plays, some 7,000 poems, and over 5,000 letters. OSEO will provide critical editions of original works by some of the most important writers in the humanities, such as William Shakespeare, as well as works from lesser-known writers such as Shackerley Marmion.
