The Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH) at the University of Luxembourg, along with academic publisher De Gruyter, have recently launched the international, open-access Journal of Digital History.
According to the journal website, the publication “aims to become the central hub of critical debate and discussion in the field of Digital History by offering an innovative publication platform, promoting a new form of data-driven scholarship and of transmedia storytelling in the historical sciences”.
Articles published in this new journal will be “multi-layered”. Each article should include a narrative layer involving transmedia storytelling; a hermeneutic layer exploring the methodological implications of using digital tools and data; and a data layer providing access to data and code by means of a professional infrastructure.
Call for papers
The journal’s first call for papers for its inaugural issue seeks contributions from all subfields of (digital) history are welcome. Articles with structure and arguments that demonstrate the journal’s thematic narrative, hermeneutic, and data layers are especially sought after.
