Qualities of digital scholarship for the arts and humanities are outlined as an ecology of research and pedagogy, expanding the scholarly journal by advancing the possibilities of online publishing. While moving away from paper-based scholarship is the first step, new models of digital scholarship that are multimodal and interactive allow for real-time effects, reflexive research, reconsider intellectual openness through a radical sense of accessibility, and broadly (re)define the textual body in research to one that is transdisciplinary. In this article, we elaborate on the current trends and opportunities in digital scholarship presented by online publications as an extension of research modalities, augmenting what art education research publications look like, presenting new and rich contexts for scholarship. We explore limitations and benefits found in the current state of academic publishing by asking how scholarship can be transformed in a technological ecology.
