Author Guidelines

DS/CN invites contributions relating to work carried out in the digital humanities, broadly construed. In its open, thematic, and conference volumes DS/CN publishes academic articles, scholarly notes, working papers, field synopses, larger reviews, and well-documented opinion pieces. DS/CN privileges publications which explicitly demonstrate an awareness of interdisciplinary context(s) and a history of pertinent academic engagement.


Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. Work submitted for publication must be previously unpublished, not under consideration for publication elsewhere and, if accepted, should not then be published elsewhere in the same form. If previously published figures, tables or parts of text are to be included, the copyright-holder's permission must be obtained prior to submission. See also the terms and conditions in "Ownership and Copyright" below.
  2. Include the full and a short title of the submission.
  3. Include a complete list of authors, their affiliations and addresses. The submitting agent or corresponding author should be identified along with both his/her postal and e-mail addresses, and telephone and fax numbers.
  4. Include a list of key words and an abstract of 250 words.
  5. Bibliographic references should conform to the Author-Date style published in the Chicago Manual of style, 16th edition. Spelling should follow Canadian/British conventions. Textual components of the submission should be in widely-used, standard formats.
  6. Images should be in one of the three web-appropriate image formats: PNG, GIF or JPG. Other visual data, such as 3D models, vector graphics files or video, should be accompanied by a representative still image in one of those web-appropriate formats.
  7. Full appendices and other related collateral materials, which may be in textual or non-textual form, are to be included with original submissions, and will be reviewed with the submission.
  8. Note: for the purposes of long-term referential integrity, if the author(s) wish to direct readers to any external, dynamic content (e.g. an interactive web site, a downloadable software program), these artifacts should be encapsulated by an appropriate collection of illustrative static materials, such as screen-capture images, and uploaded as collateral materials, along with the article submission.
  9. Please ensure that the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
  10. If you experience any problems during the online submission process please consult the help section of our editorial management system which provides more detailed submission instructions. Alternatively, please contact the journal editorial office for assistance.
