        The Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches sur la Renaissance Anglaise in
Montpellier is glad to announce the creation of a new e-text collection
dedicated to early modern English documents: Montpellier Early Modern
English Documents (MEMED).
        The URL is: http://serinf.univ-montp3.fr/MEMED/

MEMED is a collection of electronic texts prepared for the online
community of Renaissance scholars by the members and partners of the

in Montpellier
We intend to provide these documents in at least two formats, html
and rtf. Only html is available at this time. You may use and
redistribute these texts provided that the legal notices prefixed to
them are not removed from the documents.

Editorial Policy (abstract)

MEMED will publish documents of short or medium
length, edited from original early modern manuscript or printed
sources. We intend to make rare material of documentary importance
Several online scholarly series already provide serious electronic
editions of literary works. Our purpose is not to enter into a
competition with these eminent colleagues. Our desire is to provide
our readers with other kinds of texts, from politically seminal
pamphlets to pious ballads, from legal documents to comical
We shall publish modern-spelling editions for legibility's sake, but
editors are asked to respect the vocabulary, syntax and grammar of
their documents. If the form of the text is likely to be adulterated
by spelling alterations (rhymes, metrical devices, etc), our editors
are allowed to retain all or some of the original spelling.
Submissions will be read by two members the editorial board. The
founding editors are recognised scholars in their fields, already
involved in 'paper' and electronic scholarly publications of
established standing.
