Scalar is an authoring and publishing platform that’s designed to make it easy for authors to write long-form scholarship online. The platform particularly facilitates work that engages visual materials. Scalar enables users to assemble media clips and images from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing in a variety of ways, with minimal technical expertise required.
