Digital Humanities Quarterly: Call for Scholarly and Creative Work

Matt Kirschenbaum just sent out an exciting announcement about a new journal that will serve as a forum for scholarly and creative work in electronic media. Digital Humanities Quarterly will publish scholarly articles, editorials, experiments in interactive media, and reviews of books, web sites, new media art, and digital humanities systems. Importantly, this will be a free, open-access journal, and both critical and creative work will go through a peer review process.

Call for Submissions
Digital Humanities Quarterly

Submissions are invited for Digital Humanities Quarterly, a new open-access peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations and the Association for Computers and the Humanities. Submissions may be mailed to submissions@digitalhumanities.org. A web submission form will also be available soon.

We welcome material on all aspects of digital media in the humanities, including humanities computing, new media, digital libraries, game studies, digital editing, pedagogy, hypertext and hypermedia, computational linguistics, markup theory, and related fields. In particular, we are interested in submissions in the following categories:

  • Articles representing original research in digital humanities
  • Editorials and opinion pieces on any aspect of digital humanities
  • Reviews of web resources, books, software tools, digital publications, and other relevant materials
  • Interactive media works including digital art, hypertext literature, criticism, and interactive experiments. A separate call
    for submissions is also being issued for this area.

Submissions in all categories may be in traditional formats, or may be formally experimental. We welcome submissions that experiment with the rhetoric of the digital medium. We encourage the use of standards-based formats, but over time we will work to accommodate a wider range of media types and experimental functions.

Submissions may be of any length. All submissions will be peer reviewed.
