The Deciphering Projects publishes peer-reviewed research and findings on:
- the effectiveness of digital education and paleographic pedagogy,
- developing and organizing digital repositories that house manuscripts and transcriptions, and
- fundamental historical research on medieval inter-religious life as revealed from our citizen scientists’ review of manuscripts.
In particular, our research findings speak to the efficacy of citizen science projects and the humanistic value of engaging the public in scholarly research.
