Digital Scholarship in the Academic Promotion Process

Digital scholarship can be found across the humanities, social sciences, and scientific/technical/medical subject areas. We would like to showcase current contributions from the academic community and highlight innovative ones. The process for inclusion of digital scholarship in the tenure and promotion process will be looked at. Is it inclusive enough? How clear are the guidelines for evaluation of the intellectual processes? How can one make sure that the breadth of effort behind the creation of digital content is recognized and understood?
