The Journal of Open Humanities Data (JOHD) aims to be a key part of a thriving community of scholars sharing humanities data. The journal features peer reviewed publications describing humanities research objects or techniques with high potential for reuse. Humanities subjects of interest to JOHD include, but are not limited to Art History, Classics, History, Linguistics, Literature, Modern Languages, Music and musicology, Philosophy, Religious Studies, etc. Submissions that cross one or more of these traditional disciplines are particularly encouraged.
Ubiquity Press would like to welcome JOHD’s new Editor in Chief, Dr Barbara McGillivray. Barbara’s background is in computational linguistics for classical languages. She is a Turing research fellow at the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics at the University of Cambridge and at The Alan Turing Institute. Barbara aims to make JOHD a key part of a thriving community of scholars sharing humanities data.
We would also like to thank Dr Nicholas Weber for his hard work and efforts during the first years of the journal.

The Journal of Open Humanities Data (JOHD) features peer-reviewed publications describing humanities research objects, software, and methods with high potential for reuse. These might include curated resources like (annotated) linguistic corpora, ontologies, and lexicons, as well as databases, maps, atlases, linked data objects, and other data sets created with qualitative, quantitative, or computational methods.
We are currently inviting submissions of two varieties:
1. Short data papers contain a concise description of a humanities research object with high reuse potential. These are short (1000 words) highly structured narratives and must conform to the data paper template. A data paper does not replace a traditional research article, but rather complements it.
2. Full length research papers discuss and illustrate methods, challenges, and limitations in the creation, collection, management, access, processing, or analysis of data in humanities research, including standards and formats. These are intended to be longer narratives (3000 - 5000 words), which give authors the ability to contribute to a broader discussion.
Humanities subjects of interest to JOHD include, but are not limited to Art History, Classics, History, Linguistics, Literature, Modern Languages, Music and musicology, Philosophy, Religious Studies, etc. Research that crosses one or more of these traditional disciplinary boundaries is highly encouraged.
JOHD provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
