Keywords: Procedural Scholarship

Procedural Scholarship (prəˈsējərəl ˈskälərsh ip):

Conceptions and implementations of non-linear scholarship are by no means a recent development, yet instances of such scholarly projects still remain few and far between.  However, new technologies and practices are engendering a radical shift for academic authorship and argumentation, in part the product of the increasingly expansive capabilities of digital tools combined with a simultaneous easing of the learning curve necessitated for their use.

As we confront the challenges and embrace the possibilities inherent to the construction of non-linear scholarly argument, it is useful to combine Murray’s concept of procedural authorship with McPherson’s multimodal scholarship. In this nascent form of procedural scholarship, the author may construct a far more elaborate framework for the reader/user to traverse in order to create multiple threads through the author’s research and lines of reasoning.
