This site contains the results of the following research projects:
- "Electronic Corpus of Early Modern English Scientific Manuscripts (1500-1700)", funded by the Autonomous Government of Andalusia (reference P11-HUM7597), supervised by Dr. Javier Calle Martín.

These projects have the following objectives: a) the electronic edition of unedited Early Modern English scientific manuscripts housed in the Hunterian Collection at Glasgow University Library, the Wellcome collection at the Wellcome Library in London and the Rylands Collection at the University Manchester Library, displaying both the digitized images along with the corresponding diplomatic transcription; and b) the compilation of an POS-tagged corpus of Early Modern English Fachprosa.
This project is a follow up of previous projects entitled "The Compilation of an Electronic Corpus of Late Middle English Scientific Manuscripts", funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology under the supervision of Dr Antonio Miranda-García (referenced HUM20074-01075FILO, FFI2008-02336 and FFI2011-26492). These fundings are hereby gratefully acknowledged.
From the very beginning, we have benefited from the advice and expertise of Professor Graham Caie, from the University of Glasgow (U.K.), who is responsible for the online digital edition of Chaucer’s Romaunt of the Rose (G.U.L. MS Hunter 409 V.3.7.), and of Professor Santiago González Fernández-Corugedo, from the University of Oviedo (Spain), who is the author of an edition of the Middle English The Owl and the Nightingale (1990) and of Edmund Spenser’s Amoretti and Epithalamion (1983), among others.
