The proposed poster will highlight Digital
Humanities Quarterly (DHQ), a new open-access, peer-reviewed, digital journal covering all aspects of
digital media in the humanities. Published by the Alliance
of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), DHQ is also a community experiment in journal publication, with a commitment to:
• experimenting with publication formats and the
rhetoric of digital authoring
• co-publishing articles with Literary and Linguistic Computing (a well-established print digital humanities
journal) in ways that straddle the print/digital
• using open standards to deliver journal content
• developing translation services and multilingual
reviewing in keeping with the strongly international
character of ADHO
DHQ will publish a wide range of peer-reviewed
materials, including:
• Scholarly articles
• Editorials and provocative opinion pieces
• Experiments in interactive media
• Reviews of books, web sites, new media art
installations, digital humanities systems and tools
• A blog with guest commentators
The poster will be developed by DHQ’s technical editor,
with contributions from other editors and staff. In
addition to providing general information about the
journal, the poster will provide details about the
technical development and infrastructure behind DHQ, including the TEI-based DQH authoring schema, the
open source content management system that manages
and delivers DHQ content, and the combinations of XML, XSLT, CSS, and other Web technologies that
drive the DHQ interface.
It is hoped that DHQ will become an important resource
for the digital humanities community. The poster will serve both to promote an important new venue for
scholarship and research in digital humanities and to
provide valuable information about the technological
development of a complex and evolving online resource.

The effort to establish ADHO began in Tuebingen, at the ALLC/ACH conference in 2002: a Steering Committee was appointed at the ALLC/ACH meeting in 2004, in Gothenburg, Sweden. At the 2005 meeting in Victoria, the executive committees of the ACH and ALLC approved the governance and conference protocols and nominated their first representatives to the ‘official’ ADHO Steering Committee and various ADHO standing committees. The 2006 conference was the first Digital Humanities conference.
