Journal of Digital History logo
The Journal of Digital History (JDH) is a joint initiative of the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) at the University of Luxembourg and the De Gruyter publishing group. As an international, academic, peer-reviewed and open-access journal, it will set new standards in history publishing based on the principle of multi-layered articles.

Write (Digital) History!

Our journal aims to become the central hub of critical debate and discussion in the field of Digital History by offering an innovative publication platform, promoting a new form of data-driven scholarship and of transmedia storytelling in the historical sciences.

  1. Highlight your Digital Method. Tired of journals asking you to cut down your methodological developments? JDH introduces a hermeneutics layer where you will be able to fully go into detail.
  2. Show your Data. Gathering data and preparing/structuring your corpus is 90% of the job. Show it, thanks to JDH’s data layer
  3. Tell the (Hi)story. JDH will allow you to elaborate a narrative layer that goes beyond the traditional scope of academic journals.
  4. Rigour of a Peer Review Process. But don’t give up on rigour. JDH is based on a double blind peer review process.
