Announcing Digital Studies / Le champ numérique

Digital Studies / Le champ numérique (ISSN 1918-3666) is a refereed academic journal, publishing three times a year and serving as a formal arena for scholarly activity and as an academic resource for researchers in the digital humanities. DS/CN is published by the Society for Digital Humanities / Société pour létude des médias interactifs (SDH/SEMI), an organisation affiliated with the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC) through the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO). Work published in DS/CN reflects the values of this community and the interdisciplinary diversity of those who comprise it, with particular emphasis on emerging digital humanities methodology and its application, on the engagement of that work in pertinent disciplinary contexts, and on multilinguality and complementarity with other ADHO publications (among them the journals Literary and Linguistic Computing, and Digital Humanities Quarterly).
Similarly, our publication technology, policies and practices will strive to promote and reflect the community’s best emergent and longstanding practices.

DS/CN invites contributions relating to work carried out in the digital humanities, broadly construed. In its open, thematic, and conference volumes DS/CN publishes academic articles, scholarly notes, working papers, field synopses, larger reviews, and well-documented opinion pieces. DS/CN privileges publications which explicitly demonstrate an awareness of interdisciplinary context(s) and a history of pertinent academic engagement.
