Presentation Title: 
Hypothes.is: Bringing Open Web-based Annotation to All Scholarly Works
Description: 
The goal of Hypothes.is is to enable an open, networked conversation layer over digital objects. Hypothes.is re-engineers the ancient and ubiquitous practice of annotation in scholarship for the distributed environment of the web and the interactive capabilities of social media. It enables sentence-level critique or note-taking on top of any web page: news, blogs, scientific articles, books, terms of service, legislation and more. An open, interactive annotation layer turns every web-document or PDF into an interactive workspace. Hypothes.is is open source, free to use and specifically designed for scholarly use cases. From simply taking notes to adding critical knowledge, an open annotation layer engineered for the web provides a powerful technology for improving information flow in scholarship. Hypothesis can be installed via a simple browser extension for individual use, proxied through a URL on any page, or incorporated directly into platforms. Current uses include education, pre- and post-publication peer review, making science accessible, and tagging key concepts in the literature. In this demonstration, we will provide an introduction to web-based annotation, and hands-on tutorials directed towards both end users interested in annotation and developers who want to incorporate it into their platforms.
