The Hub is divided into two sections: in the introduction, the editor of each issue publishes a short text about the topic she or he has selected. The introduction is intended to serve as a quick overview of the topic.
The second section, called resources, contains links, each with with a small abstract, to further literature and information about the topic. This section is designed to offer several ways of approaching the selected subject. In order to assure persistence and accessibility of the resources, all have to be fixed content which is available as open access as a prerequisite. The Hub aims to fix volatile content, which otherwise would not be persistently and openly available in this section.
Each issue of the Hub aims to serve as a conversation starter for the selected topic. Every reader is encouraged to actively become part of an open discussion about the issue. The Hub has implemented the opportunity via hypothes.is to highlight, annotate and comment on each issue. Hypothes.is is a free, non-profit and open source project which enables open conversation about content on the internet. In order to take part in the conversation on the Hub, readers should create a free account with hypothes.is.
