Humanities subjects of interest to JOHD include, but are not limited to Art History, Classics, History, Library Science, Linguistics, Literature, Media Studies, Modern Languages, Music and musicology, Philosophy, Religious Studies, etc. Submissions that cross one or more of these traditional disciplines are particularly encouraged.



  • Call for Papers: Data-Driven History of Ideas

    The new field of data-driven history of ideas combines qualitative, quantitative and computational methods to study the origins, development and spread of ideas across time and space. It faces unique challenges in focusing on concepts rather than words, and on accurate, multilingual long-data from both well-known and obscure authors, seen as carriers of ideas. Essential to the field are resources like curated bibliographic metadata, historical gazetteers, and annotation datasets; these, however, are typically not suitable for traditional academic publication channels.

    To bridge this divide, the special collection  Data-Driven History of Ideas aimes to establish a platform for specialised resources supporting the study of philosophical and scientific thought across epochs and geographical areas.

  • JOHD accepted into Web of Science

    We are pleased to announce that the Journal of Open Humanities Data has been accepted into Web of Science. In making this decision, Web of Science recognised that the journal consistently includes articles that are of high academic quality and relevant to an international audience, and addresses a subject area not properly covered by an existing journal.
