The Journal of Digital History (JDH) is a joint initiative of the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) at the University of Luxembourg and the De Gruyter publishing group.
The journal serves as a forum for critical debate and discussion in the field of digital history by offering an innovative publication platform and promoting a new form of data-driven scholarship and of transmedia storytelling in the historical sciences. As an international peer-reviewed open access journal, the JDH sets new standards in history publishing based on a novel multi-layered approach. Based on code notebooks, articles include:
Jupyter Notebooks are at the heart of the edition and exploration of articles.

The PDF versions of the journal's articles published here do not offer the full experience of the full, multi-layered articles. For those, please visit https://journalofdigitalhistory.org . It is advised to access the desktop version of the articles as the mobile version, too, does not offer readers the full experience, yet. Links to the respective articles are also included in the PDF versions.
Peer Review and Submission Policy
The JDH is a single-blind peer-reviewed journal. It publishes research on all aspects of digital history. Abstracts must first be submitted via the journal website before full papers can be submitted. The managing editor will contact the author(s) to assess the feasibility of the paper. Once the managing editor has approved the paper, it should be submitted in full. Papers must contain the three layers that are characteristic of the JDH. Each layer is evaluated by means of a double-blind peer-review procedure. If you have any editorial questions, you can contact the managing editor.
Please note that your manuscript may be checked for plagiarism via Crossref Similarity Check and please take note of De Gruyter's Publication Ethics Statement.

Our journal aims to become the central hub of critical debate and discussion in the field of Digital History by offering an innovative publication platform, promoting a new form of data-driven scholarship and of transmedia storytelling in the historical sciences.1) Highlight your Digital Method
Tired of journals asking you to cut down your methodological developments? JDH introduces a hermeneutics layer where you will be able to fully go into detail.2) Show your Data
There’s no history without primary sources. Turning them into a dataset is a hallmark of digital history today. Expose your dataset and – if possible – make it reusable for other researchers thanks to JDH’s data layer.3) Narrate (Hi)story
JDH allows you to elaborate a (multi-media) narrative layer that goes beyond the traditional scope of academic journals.4) Don’t give up on rigour
JDH is based on a single-blind peer review process.
The journal makes use of ipynb notebooks to publish the articles. In addition to that, there is a couple of rules to format content and visualize datasets. The article shall be written in English (and thus use English style typography). You can find the guidelines for authors here: https://journalofdigitalhistory.org/en/guidelines
