MAA Rubric

Gold Level
Peer Reviewed Critical Edition
Meets the standards of a critical edition; judged by the MAA as equal in quality to the kinds of editions that appear in the MAA printed editions series or scholarly articles that appear the MAA journal "Speculum".
Green Level
Peer Reviewed Working Edition
Meets the standards of a working edition; judged by the MAA as a high quality edition that should be regarded by scholars as useful and reliable. The MAA recommends that crediting institutions should recognize this edition as the product of careful scholarship and as a significant contribution to the field. While lacking certain features that are expected of a full critical edition (such as a collation of certain manuscripts, an apparatus fontium, etc.), it is free from errors, and offers a text that is a genuine improvment over what has heretofore been available.
