About the Journal
Focus and Scope
** Update 2019-08-16: Human IT currently does not accept new submissions until further notice. **
Human IT is a multi-disciplinary and scholarly journal with the goal of bringing forth new research and discussion about digital media as communicative, aesthetic, and ludic instruments. The journal is closely aligned with the new field of digital humanities. We welcome contributions from the humanities, the social, behavioural, and natural sciences, as well as technology.
Human IT aspires to be a forum for new research which risks falling outside of the borders of intra-disciplinary channels of publication as a result of its multi-disciplinary approach or unorthodox choice of subject. We work with an extended editorial board which includes representatives from many different scholarly disciplines, practices, and countries.
Human IT contains both a refereed section and an open section. For both sections, we accept scholarly texts of different types and on different levels, including empirically founded research reports and theoretical discussions, presentations of completed or planned research projects and studies as well as scholarly essays and longer literature reviews.
Periodically, an issue will be devoted to a special theme that accords with the overall topics of the journal, for instance, “Language and IT”, “Computerization and Narrative Fiction”, “E-democracy”, or “Artificial intelligence”.
