Oxford University Press makes scholarly editions available online through innovative new platform

Oxford University Press made its prestigious and world-renowned collection of scholarly editions available online for the first time today through Oxford Scholarly Editions Online. Launching with 171 editions of works written by authors principally active between 1485 and 1660, OSEO contains the original texts of approximately 12,000 works, including 200 plays, some 7000 poems, and more than 5000 letters. It will provide trustworthy and reliable critical editions of original works by some of the most important writers in the humanities, such as William Shakespeare and Ben Jonson, as well as works from lesser-known writers such as Shackerley Marmion. In doing so it will open up research possibilities to students and academics by providing them with the ability to search and compare works of English Literature, Philosophy, History, and Religion
