INKE ID members have a paper entitled “Visual workflow interfaces for editorial processes” published in the Literary and Linguist Computing (LLC). This paper was presented at DH 2012, in Hamburg, Germany, and later expanded and edited to be published.
Here is the abstract, reference and link to the article:
In this article, we provide a discussion of the concept of visual interactive workflows, how they relate to our previous work on structured surfaces, and how they have been adapted to experiments in managing articles for journal publication and managing biographical histories being written and tagged in XML. We conclude with a user experience study of the prototypes, which suggests that they are relatively acceptable at the level of reflective response, but might benefit from more iteration in their use of process and element metaphors.
