The Journal of Open Humanities Data (JOHD)<https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/> features peer-reviewed publications describing humanities research objects with high potential for reuse. These might include curated resources like (annotated) linguistic corpora, ontologies, and lexicons, as well as databases, maps, atlases, linked data objects, and other data sets created with qualitative, quantitative, or computational methods.

We are currently inviting submissions of two varieties:

1. Short data papers contain a concise description of a humanities research object with high reuse potential. These are short (1000 words) highly structured narratives and must conform to the data paper template<https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/ubiquity-partner-network/up/journal/johd/JOHD_data_paper_template_final.docx>. A data paper does not replace a traditional research article, but rather complements it.

2. Full length research papers discuss and illustrate methods, challenges, and limitations in humanities research data creation, collection, management, access, processing, or analysis. These are intended to be longer narratives (3,000 - 5,000 words), which give authors the ability to contribute to a broader discussion regarding the creation of research objects or methods.

Humanities subjects of interest to the JOHD include, but are not limited to Art History, Classics, History, Linguistics, Literature, Modern Languages, Music and musicology, Philosophy, Religious Studies, etc. Research that crosses one or more of these traditional disciplinary boundaries is highly encouraged. Authors are encouraged to publish their data in recommended repositories<https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/about/#repo>. More information about editorial policies<https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/about/editorialpolicies/> and archiving<https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/about/> is available on the journal’s web pages.

JOHD provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. While we publish continuously, this call for papers has a submission deadline on 1st April 2022 and we expect to notify authors of acceptance by 31 May 2022. Final publication is expected by the end of August 2022 at the latest.

We accept online submissions via our journal website. See Author Guidelines <https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/about/submissions/> for further information. Alternatively, please contact the editors<https://openhumanitiesdata.metajnl.com/contact/> if you are unsure as to whether your research is suitable for submission to the journal.
