Over the next several years this coalition will be working together to define, design and implement a common framework for scholarly collaboration from peer-review through post-publication discussion, [...]

Hypothesis at Society for Neuroscience

At long last, I’m able to sit down and summarize my thoughts and experiences on Hypothesis at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in Chicago, Oct 17-21st. First of all, a hearty, gigantic thank you to my colleagues at the Neuroscience Information Framework, a Hypothesis partner, for featuring Hypothesis at the NIF booth and for helping [...]

Using Hypothesis Groups in the Classroom

A couple of weeks ago, we quietly released a new feature here at hypothes.is: the ability to annotate websites and PDFs in groups. Previously, all annotations created using hypothes.is were either public or private (“only me”). Now you can create a hypothes.is group and invite others to join you in annotating a text or set [...]

Working with Wikipedia articles

Hypothesis is exploring the use of on-line annotation to provide review and enhancement of Wikipedia articles. The Neuroscience Wiki Project encourages the neuroscience community to improve the accuracy and robustness of neuroscience articles by directly editing Wikipedia.  While that approach is still best, many researchers may not have time or be unsure of proper protocols [...]

Using Atom feeds to receive Hypothesis notifications in Slack

Update: We have since implemented RSS and that turns out to be a better solution than Atom for Slack integration. To use it, just change stream.atom to stream.rss in the examples here. At Hypothesis we've recently started using Slack for team communication. We've also recently spruced up our Atom feed. Let's look at how you [...]

Integrating Hypothesis using Ajax and CORS

We've recently added two ways to integrate Hypothesis with other systems: CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing) and Atom. We'll explore what you can do with CORS here, and with Atom feeds in another post. It's long been possible to embed Hypothesis in an iframe on a web page. On this page you can see two examples. The first [...]

Farewell to bookmarklets

This post originated as http://blog.jonudell.net/2015/05/13/farewell-to-bookmarklets/ in the voice of Jon Udell, not the voice of Hypothesis. I posted it here in part to explore how Hypothesis can attach annotations to documents that are the same or similar. Dan Whaley made some annotations to the WordPress preview here that reflect the voice of Hypothesis. Now what? [...]

I Annotate Hack Days

I Annotate is a two day collaborative conversation centered around annotation on April 23 - 24th in San Francisco. After all that inspiration, we're confident attendees will want to code something! So, we've added two more days to the event for some heads down coding time. We're also inviting anyone who's got an annotation project—no [...]
