Call for Submissions (Interactive Media)

Digital Humanities Quarterly

Interactive Media submissions are invited for Digital Humanities Quarterly, a new open-access peer-reviewed online 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, and we encourage research creators to submit original interactive works for review. These works should be an original use of interactivity and design in educational, research, or creative communication. Suitable works could include (but are not limited to) original hypertext fiction, online educational applications or games, text analysis tools, interactive visualizations, streaming media work, and original interactive digital artwork.

We are also seeking articles representing original research in digital humanities, editorials, and reviews regarding any aspect of digital humanities (including humanities computing, new media, digital libraries, game studies, digital editing, pedagogy, hypertext and hypermedia, computational linguistics, markup theory, and related fields). A separate call for submissions will be posted 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.

All submissions will be peer reviewed.
