As in the original submission, the revised manuscripts
must have numbered lines to facilitate locating specific text or changes.
Nevertheless, many insights emerge: the importance of travel by water and the machinations of patrons and authors, not to mention scribes and illuminators, are just some of the outcomes of studying manuscripts
are expected to be original, important contributions to knowledge, and are expected to present valid results in sufficient detail for readers to assess the quality of the inferences drawn.
Pascale Bourgain examines the idea of a textual tradition, how texts were disseminated and how far, as well as at the idea of the success of a text in "The circulation of texts in manuscript
culture" (140-59); Lucie Dolezalova, in "Multilingualism and late medieval manuscript
culture" (160-80), finds similarities between medieval England and medieval Bohemia with respect to manuscripts
that communicate in three languages; and Keith Busby and Christopher Kleinhenz, in "Medieval French and Italian Literature: towards a manuscript

The addition of the prose material also necessitated the creation of individual manuscript

that are spread across more than fifty repositories around the world.
A spokesman for the university said: "Time slots will be allocated to view the manuscript
, and a limited number of tickets are available.
Thus, in the context of peer review of manuscripts
, interrater reliability can be conceptualized as the extent to which two or more reviewers, using the same evaluation rubric, agree in their assessments of the quality and acceptability of the same manuscript
