Call for Nominations: DH Awards 2020!

It goes without saying that 2020 was a difficult year both personally and academically for many people, but we have also seen some extraordinary work from our colleagues over the last twelve months. What are some of the DH-related resources that really made you sit back and say “wow”? Was there something that transformed your approach to your work? How about a blog post that captured the moment or that provided a good explanation of how to get started with a tool or a new digital environment? Was there a dataset or a platform that rapidly changed our understanding of Covid-19? Or, perhaps, was there a project you viewed that rose to the occasion of documenting the need for social justice?

Call for Reviewers: RIDE Review Journal for Digital Editions and Resources

Have you ever used a digital tool or environment and thought, “this is a great feature, why don’t more people know about this?” Or maybe you have used something and thought “I would have done this slightly differently. I think this could use some improvements in terms of documentation or design.” If this sounds like you, perhaps you would be interested in contributing as a reviewer to a special issue of the RIDE Journal for Digital Editions and Resources. The special issue, edited by Dr Anna-Maria Sichani (University of Sussex) and Dr Elena Spadini (Université de Lausanne), will specifically focus on reviews of digital tools and digital environments.

What’s in a number? A closer look at Open Access readership data, Part Two

This is Part Two of a two-part series on Open Access Readership Data. To see Part One, click here.


In Part One of this blog series I have already explained how the readership data of the OA books published with the support of the KU Leuven Fund for Fair Open Access are gathered and displayed on our website.
