The journal is intended to serve as a forum and central hub 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 will set new standards in history publishing based on a novel multi-layered approach. Each article will include:
- a narration layer that will allow authors to use transmedia storytelling and go beyond the traditional scope of academic journals;
- a hermeneutic layer exploring the methodological implications of using digital tools and data - the authors's methods will be exposed in full details;
- a data layer that makes the underlying data and program code visible and accessible for scrutiny and learning. Show your data and code!
Jupyter Notebooks are at the heart of the edition and exploration of articles.
