Postgraduates and Advanced Research
- Some 40-100 Dickens-related research projects are registered each year in the UK and USA; 120+ essays and articles and books on Dickens are published each year, not including the contents of three dedicated quarterly journals publishing scholarly articles focusing on Dickens ; every UK HEI has teachers and lecturers specialising in Dickens as do most university English departments worldwide (especially in the USA, Japan and Australia); over 110 Dickens-based websites are being maintained : there is a worldwide community of 1000+ Dickens researchers.
- Information about the journals is scarce: articles in Dickens’s journals were anonymously published, and the authorship of about 40% of the articles is still unknown; indexes are incomplete and hard to come by.
“The need for a site of this kind amongst a broad range of Humanities researchers and advanced students can hardly be overstated” (Professor Emeritus Michael Slater, Birkbeck College, University of London).
DJO will cross-reference to contributors’ names and biographical profiles for over 60% of the authors; DJO will verify and publish new attributions provided by readers, as an ongoing contribution to knowledge; the contents of the site will be indexed under keywords, making the online edition superior in many ways to the print originals.
