Author Guidelines

Digital Philology is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of medieval texts and cultures. Founded by Stephen G. Nichols and Nadia R. Altschul, the journal aims to foster scholarship that crosses disciplines upsetting traditional fields of study, national boundaries, and periodizations. Digital Philology also encourages both applied and theoretical research that engages with the digital humanities and shows why and how digital resources require new questions, new approaches, and yield radical results. The Johns Hopkins University Press publishes two issues of Digital Philology per year.
