Digital Humanities Now and Journal of Digital Humanities

These experimental publications prototyped new strategies and tools to aggregate and curate open access scholarship, including the PressForward plugin for WordPress.

Since 2009, Digital Humanities Now has served as the front page for a fast growing community of practice. In 2012, DHNow won an inaugural DH award. From 2012-2014, the Journal of Digital Humanities provided three additional layers of evaluation, review, and editing to offer a more lasting platform for scholarship in development.

As editor from 2011-2014, I was responsible for the editorial calendar and daily management of both publications, including content solicitation, identification, selection, editing, and production. I supervised my 6 internal editors and over 200 volunteer editors through the iterative development of these publications’ technical processes and the concurrent agile development of our plugin.
