Digital Scholarly Editing is one of the core fields in Digital Humanities. It clearly connects one of the most venerable practices and methods of the humanities with the fundamentally different approach of digital scholarship. From the point of view of theory or perhaps even epistemology, we can consider Digital Editing a perfect test case to probe the assumption that there is a « fundamental change » in approach between traditional and digital scholarship. From the point of view of method, we are witnessing the further development and transformation of a method that has been developed over centuries. From the point of view of practice we have yet to identify and then perhaps grant canonical status to current best practices in the creation of scholarly editions. All three perspectives demand a reliable empirical « fundament » which can be obtained by the criticism, comparison, and careful evaluation of current digital editions. In order to facilitate this, a list of assessment criteria has been created which serves as a basis for extensive reviews published in a dedicated online journal. By discussing the various items on the criteria list, we can observe whether with traditional versus digital editing we are talking about two completely different things or whether the core challenges in editing have to a large extent remained the same.
