MLA Guidelines for Digital Scholars

Digital media are transforming literacy, scholarship, teaching, and service, as well as providing new venues for research, communication, and the creation of networked academic communities. The following guidelines are designed to help departments and faculty members implement effective evaluation procedures for hiring, reappointment, tenure, and promotion. They apply to scholars working with digital media as their subject matter and to those who use digital methods or whose work takes digital form. They include:

  • Guidelines for Evaluating Work in Digital Humanities and Digital Media
  • Guidelines for Appointment, Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure Committees
  • Guidelines for Candidates and Faculty Members

Full guidelines can be found on the Modern Language Association website: http://www.mla.org/guidelines_evaluation_digital
