The session I’m thinking about would allow participants to talk about the implications of digital humanities, its ethos, theoretical frameworks, and practices, for traditional scholarly journals. Possible topics might include: integrating digital with traditional journals; migrating traditional print journals into the digital space and what that might mean logistically, conceptually, etc.; open access/open peer review; editorial practices; multimedia; implications for tenure, etc etc.
Full disclosure: I ran an online-only scholarly peer-reviewed journal that I would consider not-DH for about seven years; I’m on the editorial board for an online-only scholarly peer-reviewed journal that considers itself “DH” now; I’m also an associate editor for a print-only traditional scholarly journal; and I might be about to take the helm at a print-only traditional scholarly journal that is looking to do digital. SO: I have some experience, but am also about to embark on something that might require me to answer some of these questions — so I can share some ideas, but am also looking to learn.
Also: not saying “traditional” and “DH” are all mutually exclusive terms — simply hoping to have a conversation about how shifts and developments in digital humanities are affecting various forms of scholarly/academic dissemination/publishing — and hoping to talk about this in a nuts-and-bolts kind of way.
