  • Cultural Analytics is an open-access journal dedicated to the computational study of culture. Its aim is to promote high quality scholarship that applies computational and quantitative methods to the study of cultural objects (sound, image, text), cultural processes (reading, listening, searching, sorting, hierarchizing) and cultural agents (artists, editors, producers, composers). Articles combine theoretical sophistication, computational expertise, and grounding in a particular field towards the crafting of thought-provoking arguments about how culture works at significantly larger scales than traditional research. Cultural Analytics publishes in three sections: Articles, Data Sets, and Debates.
  • Kairos is a refereed open-access online journal exploring the intersections of rhetoric, technology, and pedagogy. Since its first issue in January of 1996, the mission of Kairos has been to publish scholarship that examines digital and multimodal composing practices, promoting work that enacts its scholarly argument through rhetorical and innovative uses of new media. Kairos publishes “webtexts,” which are texts authored specifically for web publication.
  • Computational Linguistics is the longest-running publication devoted exclusively to the computational and mathematical properties of language and the design and analysis of natural language processing systems. This highly regarded quarterly offers university and industry linguists, computational linguists, artificial intelligence and machine learning investigators, cognitive scientists, speech specialists, and philosophers the latest information about the computational aspects of all the facets of research on language.
  • Journal of the Text Encoding Initiativethe official journal of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium, publishes selected papers from the annual TEI Conference and Members’ Meeting and special issues based on topics or themes of interest to the community or in conjunction with special events or meetings associated with TEI.
  • The Journal of Interactive Technology & Pedagogy (JITP) promotes open scholarly discourse around critical and creative uses of digital technology in teaching, learning, and research. “Educational institutions have often embraced instrumentalist conceptions and market-driven implementations of technology that overdetermine its uses in academic environments. Such approaches underestimate the need for critical engagement with the integration of technological tools into pedagogical practice. The JITP will endeavor to counter these trends by recentering questions of pedagogy in our discussions of technology in higher education. The journal will also work to change what counts as scholarship—and how it is presented, disseminated, and reviewed—by allowing contributors to develop their ideas, publish their work, and engage their readers using multiple formats.”
  • Humanist Studies & the Digital Age is devoted to the study and reformulation of received philological and philosophical ideas of writing and reading in the Digital Era. It is part of the Directory of Open Access Journals.
  • The International Journal for Digital Art History seeks to gather current developments in the field of Digital Art History world-wide and to foster discourse on the subject both from Art History and Information Science.
  • The Journal of Data Mining & Digital Humanities is concerned with the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities, with tools provided by computing such as data visualization, information retrieval, statistics, text mining by publishing scholarly work beyond the traditional humanities.
