A work in progress

This list is very much a work in progress as we amalgamate and update the lists of our many contributors. The Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory is truly a community project indebted to the generosity of so many people who gave of their time in a wide range of ways.

If you don't find yourself, rest assured that we have a long way to go and will be checking in with people as we make progress. If you don't see an indication of where your contribution would fit in the empty sections, or if you don't consider your contribution to be accurately described, please contact us at cwrc@ualberta.ca.

CWRC-Writer:

The CWRC-Writer in-browser XML and RDF Editor is a centerpiece of the CWRC system, allowing users to move easily between consuming and producing scholarship either by modifying the text directly, if they have permissions, or by creating stand-off annotations. It was developed by Open Sky Solutions of Hamilton, Ontario.
