Call for Papers for 2023

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.  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

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

We accept online submissions via our journal website. See Author Guidelines

information. Alternatively, please contact the
editor<> if you are unsure as to
whether your research is suitable for submission to the journal.

Authors remain the copyright holders and grant third parties the right to use,
reproduce, and share the article according to the Creative
