THATCamp, The Humanities and Technology Camp, is an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels meet to learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot: it is a well-known and popular global unconference. The Proceedings of THATCamp is a wholly automatic collection of and portal to blog posts from around the THATCamp website network.
Seven issues. Nearly 90 works by over 120 authors and a half dozen institutions. More than 600 pages. Who says that there is no scholarship on the open web? With the first two volumes of the Journal of Digital Humanities (JDH) we have offered an overlay journal for this diverse and emerging field, sourced almost entirely from scholarship on the open web in the previous six months. This post provides background on some frequently asked questions about the production of JDH content and issues.
The seventh issue of the Journal of Digital Humanities is now available online, with options to download as epub, PDF, or iBook.
In the scholarly communication ecosystem, lectures and conference roundtables offer valuable opportunities to share one’s on-going research and reflections with an engaged audience. Although social media, online conference programs, and slideshare sites now boost the signal of scholarly work, talks at conferences are still often limited by the time and place of their delivery. In this seventh issue of the Journal of Digital Humanities, each featured piece translated what began as an oral presentation at a scholarly conference into another form for a wider audience on the open web. In addition, we are proud to debut a new genre of gray literature in this first of two installments of posters originally presented at DH2013, the annual, international conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations. Our goal was to improve the visibility of these already peer-reviewed works by offering a sustainable, open publication venue that benefits both those who were able to attend DH2013 and those who were not. As you read the features and peruse the poster gallery in this issue, we hope that you find new insights, new tools, or new approaches that are currently in development and of lasting value to you.
