The romantic collective author
Abstract Although the romantic collective author isAlthough the romantic collective author is a much more elusive creature than its romantic individual counterpart, it can be discerned amidst the proliferation of expression on the Internet. This article first outlines the ways in which the romantic author effect operates through both its genius and its arbiter prongs within collaborative authorship practices in digital networks. It next turns to scientific collaboration, where this author effect is attenuated, to assess whether scientific authorship practices might contribute to a more realistic and less romantic understanding of expressive authorship practices. A subsequent case study of collaborative digital authorship by Wikipedia contributors uncovers some of the underlying social processes giving rise to Wikipedia’s position of collective genius and authority. Analysis of these collaborative authorship processes reveals implicit certification functions, which can obscure various biases that should be addressed in order to shape a more inclusive and reliable knowledge environment.lusive and reliable knowledge environment.

Research questions This Article elaborates upon the existenceThis Article elaborates upon the existence and effect of a romantic collective author. Part I presents some ways in which these combined aspects of the author effect (genius and arbiter) operate generally within collaborative authorship practices in digital networks. Then Part II turns to scientific collaboration—where the author effect has less influence—to assess whether these scientific authorship practices might contribute to a more realistic, and less romantic, understanding of expressive authorship practices... Drawing on possible parallels to the scientific and the product certification realms, Part III then catalogs some of the unintended biases produced by the romantic collective author.roduced by the romantic collective author.
