    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Teamwork and collaboration are key components of any project, particularly digital ones. However, clear models for recognizing team-member contributions to digital projects are not present within the humanities, what with its historical emphasis on the single author. As a result, the participants in the “Off the Tracks—Laying New Lines for Digital Humanities Scholars” workshop developed the “Collaborators’ Bill of Rights” with the fundamental principle that “all kinds of work on a project are equally deserving of credit” (par. 1). Anyone starting a digital project with other individuals will want to refer to this document to guide discussions about the different ways to recognize effort within the project. It could also serve as a foundational document for the development of project charters (see “Toward a Project Charter” and “The Iterative Design of a Project Charter for Interdisciplinary Research” as well as the Center for Digital Humanities’ “Student Collaborators’ Bill of Rights,” which is an artifact included in the keywords “Labor” and “Collaboration”).
