ADHO is excited to announce that the annual DH conference submissions will be given double blind peer review for the first time this year. While in the past reviewers were kept private from those submitting their scholarly work for consideration, this change means that neither the reviewer nor the applicant will be aware of the other's identity. We believe this will improve the outcomes of the conference by minimizing unconscious biases that can emerge during the review process.
For those individuals who have already submitted for this year's conference, you will be contacted separately to anonymize your submission(s) for the double blind peer review process. The changes will also be articulated on the DH2018 website under the individual call for participants (link: https://dh2018.adho.org/en/cfp).
