‘A few scholarly ventures have defined the early history of peer-reviewed online research and publication in the humanities. 19 is one of them.’
Jerome McGann, founder of the Rossetti Archive and author of Radiant Textuality: Literary Studies after the World Wide Web (Palgrave/St. Martin's Press, 2001)
19 is an open access, scholarly, peer-reviewed online journal dedicated to advancing interdisciplinary study in the long nineteenth century. Based at Birkbeck, 19’s editorial team comprises Dr Carolyn Burdett (general editor); Dr Victoria Mills (editorial responsibility for the journal’s visual content); and Dr David Gillott (assistant editor with overview of publication processes). The journal was originally conceived as a means to extend the activities of Birkbeck’s Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies by making the high-quality, original scholarship presented at its Forum, conferences, symposia, and other events available to an international audience.
Launched in October 2005 as the first free online journal of its kind in nineteenth-century studies, 19 is a popular and valuable resource for nineteenth-century scholars across the globe. The journal has established a reputation for publishing field-defining work in both traditional and innovative ways, and it remains committed to this aim.
We publish two themed issues annually, curated by a guest editor, and consisting of a collection of peer-reviewed articles showcasing the broadest range of new research in nineteenth-century studies, as well as additional special forums advancing critical debate in the field. We seek to explore, utilize, and advance the digital possibilities of our publishing platform in presenting the nineteenth century to a wide readership.
In February 2009 19 aggregated with NINES, allowing readers to search, collect, tag, and share 19 content using the NINES collex interface. As academic publishing moves forward into the open-access future, 19 continues to innovate and pursue the highest standards in electronic scholarly publishing. In 2015, the year of the journal’s tenth anniversary, 19joined the Open Library of Humanities. Founded by Professor Martin Eve and Dr Caroline Edwards (both at Birkbeck), the OLH provides an ethically sound and sustainable open access model for humanities research.
Readers of 19 can choose to access articles in downloadable PDF form, or via a web browser as html pages. Our new site enhances 19’s supplementary features, allowing us to present a rich array of audio and visual material alongside more traditional format scholarly essays.

Submissions to DM should concern topics likely to be of interest to medievalists working with digital media, though they need not be exclusively medieval in focus.
Digital Studies / Le champ numérique is a refereed academic journal that serves as an Open Access area for formal scholarly activity and as a resource for researchers in the Digital Humanities. It is published for the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations under the direction of the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities/Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH/SCHN) by the Open Library of the Humanities.
Submissions to DSCN focus on the intersection of technology and humanities research. Articles on the application of technology to cultural, historical, and social problems, on the societal and institutional context of such applications, and the history and development of the field of Digital Humanities. Submissions focussing on issues of the practice of the Digital Humanities in a global, multi-cultural, or multi-lingual context are particularly encouraged.
As a rule, submissions to DSCN should be of generalisable import: project reports and technical notes are welcome when they discuss significant milestones in the history and development of the field or are clearly extensible. DSCN rarely publishes criticism of digital objects (e.g. game criticism, literary criticism of electronic art or literature); it does so primarily in the context of special issues.
Digital Studies / Le champ numérique is a Gold Open Access refereed journal. Articles published with DSCN are compliant with most national and institutional Open Access mandates including the Research Council UK (RCUK) Open Access Mandate (required by the HEFC for the post-2014 REF) and the Canadian Draft Tri-Agency Open Access Policy.
All articles published by DSCN are published under a Creative Commons 3.0 CC-BY licence (required for compatibilty with the RCUK mandate, but not offered by many journals in the Humanities and Social Sciences). This means that authors and institutions may also freely republish their work in their own institutional repositories or personal webpages ("Green Open Access").
Ethnologia Europaea is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, founded in 1967, focusing on

The journal is dedicated to general linguistics. It publishes contributions from all areas of linguistics, provided they contain theoretical implications that shed light on the nature of language and the language faculty.

The Journal of British and Irish Innovative Poetry centres on poetic writings appearing in Britain and
Ireland since the late 1950s. These varied poetic practices have been described as avant-garde,
underground, linguistically innovative, second-wave Modernist, neo-modernist, non-mainstream, the
British Poetry Revival, the parallel tradition, formally innovative, or experimental and which have
been produced in geographic clusters, such as the Cambridge School or the London School or
Morden Tower. However, we are also seeking to represent uncategorised and independent voices that
might fall through the cracks between different schools or clusters.
These posited movements were networked with a variety of formal and conceptual poetics,
including: concrete poetry; performance writing; hybrid writing; writing that explores the interplay
between orality and literacy; Black studies; diasporic approaches; translational and translingual
experiments; macaronic writing and hybridisations of the English language.
The Journal recognises that these terms, and the communities of writers and readers they refer to, are
always shifting, contested and sometimes controversial. As such, we are interested in a critical and
expansive understanding of ‘innovative’ poetic writing, both within and extending beyond the
bounds of the particular traditions outlined here.
Journal of Embodied Research is the first peer-reviewed, open access, academic journal to focus specifically on the innovation and dissemination of embodied knowledge through the medium of video.

With the goal of being a platform for discussion in the field, the Journal of Portuguese Linguistics welcomes papers, book reviews and dissertations abstracts in areas such as the European, Brazilian, and African varieties of Portuguese, Portuguese in Asia, Portuguese-based Creole languages, Iberian languages, and language acquisition, variation, contact and change. The broadening of the journal's scope is reflected by the composition of the board of consulting editors. Initiatives for thematic issues with guest editors are particularly welcome.

The Theoretical Roman Archaeology Journal (TRAJ) provides a venue for innovative and interdisciplinary research in the field of Roman Archaeology. The journal promotes the use of theoretical approaches to the Roman past and facilitates fresh interpretations of datasets, rather than solely the presentation of archaeological data. Furthermore, it is designed to include and interact with the disciplines of Archaeology, Classics, and Ancient History, as well as the Biological Sciences, Humanities, and Social Sciences in an interdisciplinary fashion. As a publication outlet, the annual TRAC Proceedings have long been at the forefront of Roman Archaeology regarding engagement in current theory and practice, and TRAJ will continue to lead the field in this capacity. The journal’s geographic focus is the whole of the Roman world, including areas beyond the frontiers where Roman influence was evident. The journal’s temporal scope is from the Bronze Age to the Late Antique period; however, the subject of most contributions will usually range from the third century BC to the fifth century AD.
