Scholarly activity that makes significant use of digital tools and methods to advance an argument, provide a pedagogical thrust, offer interpretation, be collaborative, be interdisciplinary, be open access, and/or be reusable, downloadable, manipulable, or transformable are all hallmarks of digital scholarship.
