    Please see the CFP below from the new DHCommons journal:


    The editorial team of centerNet’s new *DHCommons *journal is thrilled to
    request submissions for its inaugural issue. We seek mid-stage digital
    projects who wish peer review and feedback that will contribute to the
    project’s development.

    Project teams are asked to submit a “project statement” that will be used
    by the reviewers. The project statement will be published in the journal,
    alongside the reviews. Project teams are invited to recommend reviewers for
    their project if they wish. Reviewers will take into consideration both the
    project statement and the actual project. Projects will be assessed for
    both their form (technical aspects) and content (humanities content). The
    project statement should describe how the project contributes to its
    field(s) and in what ways the digital methods and modes of presentation
    address larger academic issues. More detailed information about *DHCommons*’
    Vision, Submission Policies, and Review Policies can be found at

    *DHCommons* editors will be ready and willing to answer questions and work
    with project directors as they craft these materials, particularly for
    those submitting to this first issue, which will be by necessity

    *Submissions are due by August 15, 2014 for publication of the first issue
    in late Fall 2014.*

    *DHCommons* invites project statements in a wide variety of languages. We
    have an international Advisory Board and will work with authors towards
    finding reviewers in the appropriate language.

    The *DHCommons* journal aims to support digital humanities scholarship by
    providing peer review for mid-stage digital projects. *DHCommons* will make
    visible the important work that often goes unseen in the midst of DH
    project development and help DH scholars claim departmental, disciplinary,
    and institutional credit for that labor. *DHCommons* intends to provide the
    robust and recognizable system of academic credit that scholars require.

    The *DHCommons* journal is a
    centerNet<> publication,
    sponsored by ADHO <> (Alliance of Digital Humanities
    Organizations), supported by DARIAH <> (the European
    Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities), and published
    by Anvil Academic Press <>. The founding
    Co-Editors-in Chief are Ryan Cordell (Northeastern University), Isabel
    Galina (UNAM) and Laurent Romary (Inria) with Quinn Dombrowski (UC
    Berkeley) as technical editor. The Editorial Board includes Anne Baillot
    (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), Cheryl E. Ball (West Virginia
    University), Marin Dacos (Centre pour l’édition électronique ouverte),
    Rebecca Frost Davis (St. Edward’s College), Jason Ensor (University of
    Western Sydney), Jieh Hsiang (National Taiwan University), Tara McPherson
    (University of Southern California), Rafael Pérez y Pérez (Universidad
    Autónoma Metropolitana, Cuajimalpa), Torsten Reimer (Imperial College
    London), Roopika Risam (Salem State University), Geoffrey Rockwell
    (University of Alberta), and Patrick Sahle (University of Cologne)
