1 Recognition and reward
This week is focused on Chapter 11 and starts from page 82. The chapter sets out some problems in recognising and rewarding digital scholarship, and also some methods by which it might be recognised. As you read consider the following questions: what is your view? Should we find ways of rewarding these non-traditional types of activity?

In the following video Martin Weller discusses issues of the use of digital scholarship with two PhD students and how it can be used for early career researchers.
