This section of the site is dedicated to a collaborative project aiming to produce texts and translations (into English and French) of the trials of Joan of Arc. Achieving this task will take the generous collaboration of scholars around the world over a long period of time. Our first goal is to produce digital copies of texts and translations that are out of copyright. We ask for your recommendations of texts and your help with the web mark-up work.
We are grateful to all who submit documents for inclusion in The International Joan of Arc Society/ Société Internationale de l’étude de Jeanne d’Arc Website. Since we must meet the highest standards of scholarly rigor and we must conform to copyright law, we ask that along with Web-ready materials by attachment or on diskette you submit hard copies of original documents as well as your translations. We remind you that international copyright laws do not permit us to mount any sources printed less than 75 years ago. Unless you hold the copyright to your materials, we must require that you receive all requisite permission from the copyright holder. Please submit copyright permissions information when you submit documents. Submitters are solely responsible for all materials mounted to the site under their names.
