Inspired by Miriam Posner’s “How did they make that?,” DHCommons Journal seeks proposals that provide “procedural descriptions of how to launch and/or maintain and exemplary aspect of a stable digital project.” The journal intends to publish 1-3 descriptions in each issue, following the examples of “Editorial Sustainability and Open Peer Review at Programming Historian” and “How Did They Make That: The Adams Timeline.” From the CFP:
Authors of accepted submissions will be asked to participate in an interview about their project that will be published alongside their piece. The interview will provide an opportunity to describe the project aspect and the project as a whole in more depth. Attempts will be made to select submissions in line with the theme of the overall issue, digital diversity. DHCommons Journal’s concept of “diversity” includes diversity in project language, staff, academic subject, or goals, among other possibilities. DHCommons Journal invites submissions in a wide variety of languages. DHCommons Journal has an International Advisory Board and will work with authors to find reviewers in the language of submission whenever possible.
Submissions are due April 1, 2016.
