Having a venue where we can publish our research is a very important aspect of creating a new scholarly community. As we know, there is no dedicated journal for Computational Humanities, and I would like to hear from you what your thoughts are on this topic.
For the Computational Humanities Research Workshop we’ve decided to publish the accepted papers in a separate conference proceedings venue. Then, the idea is to publish selected papers in a special issue of the Journal of Open Humanities Data (https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/). JOHD (of which I’m the editor-in-chief) is a data journal, but it also publishes full-length research articles on various aspects of the creation, collection, management, access, processing, or analysis of data in humanities research (https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/about/). JOHD is fully open access and its publication fees are reasonably low (£100+VAT for short data papers, and £300+VAL if applicable for full-length research papers). I’m working to expand the scope of the journal to cover more computational research.
What are your thoughts on this journal and other options for publishing Computational Humanities research?
