DH Journals

Most active journals (currently) are listed first.

  • Digital Humanities Now was launched in November 2009, and instantly became essential reading for DHers. Now relaunched as a PressForward publication, it automatically collates and curates links to news items, blog posts, etc. shared on Twitter by people in the DH community. Read more about the editorial process here.
  • NEW! The Journal of Digital Humanities, another PressForward publication, presents peer-reviewed and edited pieces that were originally selected for inclusion in the Editors’ Choice section of Digital Humanities Now. Appears quarterly.
  • Literary & Linguistic Computing (LLC), a traditional pay-for-access journal that has been published quarterly since 1986. It is a publication of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), see Organizations/Associations. Here it is at Mina Rees.
  • Digital Humanities Quarterly (DHQ) – an open-access, peer-reviewed online journal that was launched in 2007. It is also a publication of the ADHO, and is affiliated with LLC above.
  • Digital Studies / Le Champ Numérique – an open-access, peer reviewed online journal based at the University of Victoria, Canada. It is a publication of the Canadian association SD/SEMI (see see Organizations/Associations).
  • The International Journal of Humanities and Arts Computing (formerly History and Computing) is published approximately once per year by the Edinburgh University Press, and sponsored by The International Association for History and Computing, the Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative at UC Berkeley, and Digital Resources in the Humanities and Arts (DRHA, a UK-based conference).
  • Vectors – an “investigation at the intersection of technology and culture”; peer-reviewed, publishes only works that require multimedia forms: “In so doing, we aim to explore the immersive and experiential dimensions of emerging scholarly vernaculars across media platforms.”
  • TEXT Technology; the journal of computer text processing has been dormant since 2007, but has strong work in its archives (see for example the combustible penultimate issue).

Other Journals

  • First Monday – First Monday was one of the first openly accessible, peer–reviewed journals on the web, and is devoted to study of the Internet. It has appeared since May 1996 on the first Monday of every month. Although its scope is much broader than DH, it publishes many articles that are germane to the field.
  • Kairos – an open-access, refereed online journal exploring the intersections of rhetoric, technology, and pedagogy; publishes bi-annually, in August and January, with occasional special issues in May.
