Reviews in Digital Humanities is a new, peer-reviewed open access journal that facilitates scholarly evaluation of digital humanities work and its outputs, such as digital archives, multimedia or multimodal scholarship, digital exhibits, visualizations, digital games, digital tools, and digital projects.
The journal responds to the challenge of the growth of the number and scale of digital projects outpacing review opportunities in existing journals. As such, it intervenes by bridging a gap in the evaluation of digital projects by arranging for peer review of digital scholarship. Upon a project’s “acceptance,” as determined by peer reviewers, Reviews in Digital Humanities will publish 500-word overviews written by project directors along with the reviews submitted by members of the digital humanities communities. Accompanying the journal is a registry of digital scholarship, comprised of projects submitted for review. Projects will be listed in the registry regardless of their status in the review process, unless otherwise requested by project directors.
Edited by Dr. Jennifer Guiliano (IUPUI) and Dr. Roopika Risam (Salem State), the inaugural issue includes 4 reviews from a range of DH projects. Submissions are accepted by the first day of each month and may be submitted for review at email@example.com.
