What is TEXTUS?

In a nutshell it is an open source platform for working with collections of texts. It enables students, researchers and teachers to share and collaborate around texts using a simple and intuitive interface.

What does TEXTUS do?

TEXTUS currently enables users to:

  • Collaboratively annotate texts and view the annotations of others
  • Reliably cite electronic versions of texts
  • Create bibliographies with stable URLs to online versions of those texts

Where has TEXTUS been deployed?

The first instance of TEXTUS will be deployed as beta.OpenPhilosophy.org.
