        Subject: Journal of Open Humanities Data - call for papers (deadline 1 April)

[Da: *McGillivray, Barbara* <>]

The Journal of Open Humanities Data (JOHD)
<> features peer-reviewed
publications describing humanities research objects with high potential for
reuse. These might include curated resources like (annotated) linguistic
corpora, ontologies, and lexicons, as well as databases, maps, atlases,
linked data objects, and other data sets created with qualitative,
quantitative, or computational methods.

We are currently inviting submissions of two varieties:

1. Short data papers contain a concise description of a humanities research
object with high reuse potential. These are short (1000 words) highly
structured narratives and must conform to the data paper template
A data paper does not replace a traditional research article, but rather
complements it.

2. Full length research papers discuss and illustrate methods, challenges,
and limitations in humanities research data creation, collection,
management, access, processing, or analysis. These are intended to be
longer narratives (3,000 - 5,000 words), which give authors the ability to
contribute to a broader discussion regarding the creation of research
objects or methods.

Humanities subjects of interest to the JOHD include, but are not limited to
Art History, Classics, History, Linguistics, Literature, Modern Languages,
Music and musicology, Philosophy, Religious Studies, etc. Research that
crosses one or more of these traditional disciplinary boundaries is highly
encouraged. Authors are encouraged to publish their data in recommended
repositories <>. More
information about editorial policies
<> and
archiving <> is available on
the journal’s web pages.

JOHD provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that
making research freely available to the public supports a greater global
exchange of knowledge. While we publish continuously, this call for papers
has a submission deadline on 1st April 2022 and we expect to notify authors
of acceptance by 31 May 2022. Final publication is expected  by the end of
August 2022 at the latest.

We accept online submissions via our journal website. See Author Guidelines
<>for further
information. Alternatively, please contact the editors
<> if you are unsure as to
whether your research is suitable for submission to the journal.
