Call for Papers: Volume 7 of the Digital Medievalist Journal

With the publication of volume 6 and a forthcoming special issue on the 2010 MARGOT conference, Digital Medievalist is now accepting papers for volume 7 of its on-line, refereed journal.

We are asking for contributions of original research and scholarship that meet the mission statement of Digital Medievalist. Contributions should concern topics likely to be of interest to medievalists working with digital media, though they need not be exclusively medieval in focus. This includes notes on technological topics (markup and stylesheets, algorithms, tools and software, etc.), commentary pieces discussing developments in the field, bibliographic and review articles, and project reports. All contributions will be reviewed by authorities in humanities computing prior to publication.

Journal submissions or enquiries should be emailed to:

Submissions guidelines are available at

With this forthcoming volume, we are re-establishing our “rolling issue” policy which means that contributions will be published as soon as they are ready for publication without firm deadlines. To allow inclusion in volume 7, however, submission before end of August 2011 is recommended.

Digital Medievalist is an international web-based Community of Practice for medievalists working with digital media. Established in 2003, the project helps medievalists by providing a network for technical collaboration and instruction, exchange of expertise, and the development of best practice. The project operates an electronic mailing list and discussion forum, on-line refereed journal, news server for announcements and calls for papers, a wiki and FAQ. It also organises conference sessions at international medieval and humanities computing congresses. It is an elected organization and has developed some governing bylaws. The Digital Medievalist Project is overseen by an eight-member executive of medievalists with considerable experience in the use of digital media in the study of medieval topics. See our website at for more information.
