It employs a two-stave notational approach, with red demarcating the second and fourth strings. In case you've been curious about the key signatures, this has an extended scordatura, with not only the top string down a tone, but the second string as well.

The research includes analysing the 18th-century manuscripts, and looking at discrepancies, such as those in voicing highlighted below.
