The editorial team of centerNet's new /DHCommons /journal is thrilled to 
request submissions for its inaugural issue. We seek mid-stage digital 
projects who wish peer review and feedback that will contribute to the 
project's development.

Project teams are asked to submit a "project statement" that will be 
used by the reviewers. The project statement will be published in the 
journal, alongside the reviews. Project teams are invited to recommend 
reviewers for their project if they wish. Reviewers will take into 
consideration both the project statement and the actual project. 
Projects will be assessed for both their form (technical aspects) and 
content (humanities content). The project statement should describe how 
the project contributes to its field(s) and in what ways the digital 
methods and modes of presentation address larger academic issues. More 
detailed information about /DHCommons/' Vision, Submission Policies, and 
Review Policies can be found at http://dhcommons.org/journal.

/DHCommons/ editors will be ready and willing to answer questions and 
work with project directors as they craft these materials, particularly 
for those submitting to this first issue, which will be by necessity 

*Submissions are due by August 15, 2014 for publication of the first 
issue in late Fall 2014.*

/DHCommons/ invites project statements in a wide variety of languages. 
We have an international Advisory Board and will work with authors 
towards finding reviewers in the appropriate language.

The /DHCommons/ journal aims to support digital humanities scholarship 
by providing peer review for mid-stage digital projects. /DHCommons/ 
will make visible the important work that often goes unseen in the midst 
of DH project development and help DH scholars claim departmental, 
disciplinary, and institutional credit for that labor. /DHCommons/ 
intends to provide the robust and recognizable system of academic credit 
that scholars require.

The /DHCommons/ journal is a centerNet 
 http://digitalhumanities.org/centernet/  publication, sponsored by ADHO 
 http://adho.org/  (Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations), 
supported by DARIAH  http://dariah.eu/  (the European Digital Research 
Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities), and published by Anvil

Chief are Ryan Cordell (Northeastern University), Isabel Galina (UNAM) 
and Laurent Romary (Inria) with Quinn Dombrowski (UC Berkeley) as

University), Marin Dacos (Centre pour l'édition électronique ouverte),
