This chapter focuses on the aims of digital critical edition, and offers an organized inventory of tools that can help with collation, edition, research, reading, and conservation. It presents an overview of the tasks that express the ambitions of digital critical edition, while unveiling a classified inventory of techniques used at different levels of data collection, transcription, edition, research, consultation, and archiving. The discussion of these techniques thus provides readers with a natural progression from collection to edition and from edition to use and to conservation. Particular attention is given to tools and techniques that enrich traditional critical editions and facilitate scientific decision making, as well as facilitate, stimulate, and amplify readers' traditional and new access to edited materials.

Keywords:   digital critical edition, data collection, transcription, research, consultation, archiving, traditional critical editions, edited materials
