It was only twenty years ago that the role of the author was singularly attached to the publishing and to the book which, traditionally, displays the name of the author on its front cover. By offering new writing and publishing tools, recent technology has irrevocably altered the means of producing and presenting authorial historicity. Access to literary or scholarly content therefore depends primarily on the ensemble of publishing devices, that is, of everything surrounding the content, include platforms with their ergonomics and graphics, links, metadata for referencing and indexing, etc. Content legitimization, as a research axis, is concerned with changes in the authorial role and the legitimacy of content as relates to digital publishing devices.
