Scholarly Hypertext: Self-Represented Complexity

Publication: Hypertext ’97, Association For Computing Machinery, 1997, 29-37.

Scholarly hypertexts involve argument and explicit self-questioning and can be distinguished from both informational and literary hypertexts. After making these distinctions the essay presents general principles about attention, some suggestions for self-representational multi-level structures that would enhance scholarly inquiry, and a wish list of software capabilities to support such structures. The essay concludes with a discussion of possible conflicts between scholarly inquiry and hypertext.
