Call for Papers: Special ‘DH 2013’ issue of LLC

LLC: The Journal of Digital Scholarship in the Humanities will publish a special issue of top papers from Digital Humanities 2013, the annual conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations, held this summer at the University of Nebraska.  We invite submissions from anyone who presented at the meeting, including those who gave long and short papers, or who participated in panels and poster sessions.

Long articles of up to 6,000 words in length (notes & bibliography excluded) should take up theoretical issues in digital humanities or report on completed work, including at least preliminary evaluation of its results. While there is more room in shorter articles for description of work at earlier stages, we emphasize that short papers of no more than 2,000 words should make scholarly points and not merely report on DH project activities. All submissions will be evaluated by at least two independent referees.

Submissions must be received by midnight CET on November 15th, 2013.
