The Journal of Digital History (JDH) is a joint initiative of the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) at the University of Luxembourg and the De Gruyter publishing group.
The journal is intended to serve as a forum for critical debate and discussion in the field of digital history by offering an innovative publication platform and promoting a new form of data-driven scholarship and of transmedia storytelling in the historical sciences. As an international peer-reviewed open access journal, the JDH will set new standards in history publishing based on a novel multi-layered approach. Each article will include:
a narration layer involving transmedia storytelling;
a hermeneutic layer exploring the methodological implications of using digital tools and data;
a data layer providing access to data and code by means of a professional infrastructure. A key tool for this layer will be code notebooks.
Peer Review and Submission Policy
The JDH is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal. It publishes research on all aspects of digital history. Abstracts must first be submitted via the journal website before full papers can be submitted. The managing editor will contact the author(s) to assess the feasibility of the paper. Once the managing editor has approved the paper, it should be submitted in full. Papers must contain the three layers that are characteristic of the JDH. Each layer is evaluated by means of a double-blind peer-review procedure.
