Closing the Gap


With this fourth issue we wrap up the first year of the Journal of

Digital Humanities, and with it, our first twelve months of attempting

to find and promote digital scholarship from the open web using a

system of layered review. The importance of assessment and the

scholarly vetting process around digital scholarship has been foremost

in our minds, as it has in the minds of many others this year. As digital

humanities continues to grow and as more scholars and disciplines

become invested in its methods and results, institutions and scholars

increasingly have been debating how to maintain academic rigor while

accepting new genres and the openness that the web promotes.
