About this Journal

IJHAC: A Journal of Digital Humanities (formerly History and Computing) is one of the world’s premier multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed forums for research on all aspects of arts and humanities computing. It focuses both on conceptual or theoretical approaches and case studies or essays demonstrating how advanced information technologies further scholarly understanding of traditional topics in the arts and humanities. The journal also welcomes submissions on policy, epistemological, and pedagogical issues insofar as they relate directly to computing-based arts and humanities research.
