jTEI article on TAPAS published

Those who would like to find out more about the development of the TAPAS service will be interested in a recently published article in the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative: “TAPAS: Building a TEI Publishing and Repository Service” (http://jtei.revues.org/788). The article provides a detailed account of the projects goals and strategic planning, as well as the development work that is under way. It also considers how TAPAS might best respond to the needs of the TEI community. It also addresses the crucial challenges the project faces: the creation of a publication ecology that operates gracefully at the level of the individual project and the TAPAS corpus; the problem of the vulnerability of TEI data in cases where projects cease their activity; and the variability and complexity of TEI data.
