    Address a consequential scholarly question through new research methods, new ways of representing the knowledge produced by research, or both;
    Create new digital research resources;
    Increase the scholarly utility of existing digital resources by developing new means of aggregating, navigating, searching, or analyzing those resources;
    Propose to analyze and reflect upon the new forms of knowledge creation and representation made possible by the digital transformation of scholarship.
