In our new webinar dedicated to annotation for publishers on Thursday 11 January 2018, we focused on the simple steps to add open, standards-based annotation into your publication platform or website with Hypothesis, the organization that brought the world open-source, standards-based annotations and runs the largest service of its kind with over 124K users and 2.4M annotations.
During the webinar, Director of Partnerships Heather Staines and Director of Marketing Nate Angell also explored how Hypothesis collaborates with publishers to support and host annotations that enable authors, editors, invited experts, and readers to engage in discussion directly on a publication’s version of record. The webinar starts with a short presentation, including an overview of all the annotation capabilities offered by Hypothesis, how to add annotation capabilities to your publishing website or platform, and options for group creation and UI customization. Participants brought questions, so the second half of the recording is Heather and Nate discussing a variety of topics related to making annotation a central part of publications and the publishing process.

Hypothesis is a mission-driven organization dedicated to the development and spread of open, standards-based annotation technologies and practices that enable anyone to annotate anywhere, helping humans reason more effectively together through a shared, collaborative discussion layer over all knowledge. Hypothesis is based in San Francisco, CA, USA, with a worldwide team.
Hypothesis has developed its open-source annotation software in collaboration with many partners and funders, including specific projects to augment groups and authentication capabilities with eLife, to enable annotation on EPUBs with NYU, the Readium Foundation, Evident Point, and EPUB.js, and many others. We thank our funders, partners and community for working with us to advance standards-based, interoperable annotation for all.
