List of all pages edited by Erik Hammerstrom.
As the Database of Modern Chinese Buddhism continues to develop, Greg and I feel that in order to maintain a high standard of content, it would beneficial if we could recruit scholars from the community to participate in maintaining certain parts of the site.
After much consideration we think that the best way to do this would be to have named editors for each page, as well as for the different sections of the database (biographical, institutional, etc.). Editors would not be responsible for adding content, though they are more than welcome to do so. Rather, their primary responsibility would be to make sure that the form and content of the pages they edit meets the high expectations for quality, readability, and rigor that are set forth both in the DMCB and the scholarly community as a whole. In the vast majority of cases, this would mean only the occasional edit of new content.
We have written to you because we know that your research touches on X, and we would like to invite you to consider becoming an editor for that page, as well as any other pages about which you feel you have competence and/or interest. Once you become an editor, we recommend that you "Watch" the pages you edit, so that you will be notified by e-mail when changes are made to that page.
Editorship of a page does not mean that you hold any type of copyright for the content of that page; all content on the DMCB will remain available to everyone under a Creative Commons license. We do, however, feel that your stewardship of one or more pages on the DMCB should be considered an academic activity, and we encourage you to list it on your C.V.
