All too often, collaborators are brought on board to implement scholarly projects, not imagine them. Greenhouse Studios aims to change this by pushing collaboration on traditional as well as digital scholarship upstream in the research and publication workflow, to the very headwaters of inquiry, imagination, and project conception. This “collaboration first” approach will bring scholars together with designers, developers, editors, and librarians to start new projects, not merely to finish them.
The Greenhouse Studios design process begins with a team of people and an inquiry-focused prompt posed externally by Greenhouse Studios. It is the externality of the prompt that puts people and collaboration at the center of the Greenhouse Studios process, rather than the needs of a particular faculty researcher.
