CFP: DH Unbound 2022 Special Issues

The co-chairs of DH Unbound 2022, Roopika Risam, Barbara Bordalejo, and Emmanuel Château-Dutier, are co-editing special issues of Digital Studies/Le champ numérique and Reviews in Digital Humanities based on presentations at the DH Unbound 2022 conference. These special issues have a planned publication date of April 2023. Please see our calls for papers below. Questions may be directed to the DH Unbound 2022 co-chairs at

Digital Studies/Le champ numérique

Submissions are invited from all presenters at the conference, including posters, panels, alternative formats, and digital demonstrations. Authors may supplement, expand on, or refine the material they presented at the conference. We expect that most submissions will range from between 3000 to 7500 words (approx 10-26 pages), but there is no minimum or maximum length. Digital Studies/Le champ numérique is also always willing to consider generically unusual submissions.

DS/CN publishes content on a rolling basis, with pieces appearing as soon as the editorial workflow is complete.

The expected timeline for this issue is as follows:

·       September 30, 2022: Submissions due

·       October 15 – December 15, 2022: Editorial decisions (on a rolling basis as the reviews come in)

·       January 1  – February 28, 2023: Revisions due (rolling basis)

·       January 15 – March 30, 2023: Copy-editing and manuscript preparation (rolling)

·       February 15 – April 15, 2023: Proofing (rolling)

·       April 30, 2023: Last articles published.

Submissions should be in a contemporary word processing format (Word or Open/Libre Office preferred), LaTeX, (X)HTML, or TEI XML. Bibliographic citations should conform to the latest Chicago Manual of Style (author-date format). DS/CN style avoids foot/endnotes as much as possible. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission for any images or similar material in their manuscripts before submission.

Submissions are due by September 30th, 2022, and should be submitted electronically through the DS/CN website. When submitting, choose “Articles” and please add a comment on the submission form indicating that your paper relates to the DH Unbound conference proceedings.

Digital Studies/Le champ numérique mainly publishes in French and English but accepts publications in other languages.

Reviews in Digital Humanities

Submissions are invited from all presenters at the conference, including posters, panels, alternative formats, and digital demonstrations. Reviews in Digital Humanities, edited by Jennifer Guiliano and Roopika Risam, offers peer review of digital scholarship, broadly construed (including, but not limited to digital archives, multimedia or multimodal scholarship, digital exhibits, visualizations, digital games, and digital tools).

Project directors or creators supply a 500-word overview of their project, a project URL and/or additional material for review, 3-5 keywords, and 2-3 suggested reviewers without conflicts of interest. We then solicit reviewers who write a 500-word review of the submitted digital scholarship. The overview and review are then published together. Please consult the full description of our submission and review processes.

The expected timeline for the DH Unbound 2022 special issue is as follows:

·       September 30, 2022: Overviews due

·      November 15 – December 15, 2022: Feedback and revision on overviews; reviews solicited and received

·       January 1 – February 28, 2023: Feedback and revisions between Reviews and the reviewers

·       March 1-March 30, 2023: Copy-editing and manuscript preparation

·       April 18, 2023 – Publication of issue.

Typically, our review process is faster than this, so we reserve the right to publish the special issue earlier if we receive reviews in a timely manner.

To submit your project for inclusion in the special issue, please submit your overview, project URL and/or additional materials, keywords, and suggested reviewers in accordance with our submission process to with “Special Issue: DH Unbound” in the subject line by September 30, 2022.
