This proposal considers whether there is evidence that scholars in the field of English literature are actually using computational techniques, such as text analysis, authorship studies, the creation of critical editions, or even the use of online resources or electronic journals. Research was conducted by examining publications in a selection of journals from 1990 to 2003. The sample included both specialist humanities computing journals, Literary and Linguistic Computing and Computers and the Humanities, an electronic-only journal Early Modern Literary Studies, and more traditional printed journals, The Yearbook of English Studies, Review of English Studies, Prose studies, and PMLA.
