It is available as a beta site for testing, feedback, and further development before final publication anticipated in 2022. Individuals with feedback on the edition are encouraged to contact the editor or to leave comments (viewable to others) using the hypothes.is sidebar which can be extended on the right side of the screen (new users will be prompted to create a hypothes.is account). For the final publication these comments will be hidden by default but will remain viewable for individuals with the hypothes.is plugin turned on in their browsers.
