What is Digital Scholarship?

Digital scholarship is scholarly activity that leverages digital tools and methods to advance research and inquiry and present and share it in new ways. Digital scholarship poses a scholarly argument or makes an intellectual contribution to a scholarly conversation while using digital methods to add value to these processes and products.

Digital scholarship is often open, interdisciplinary, collaborative, and community-engaged, and may intersect with public scholarship, digital and open pedagogy, and digital humanities.
