The first phase of Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide’s Digital Humanities and Art History (DHAH) initiative will end with the last Mellon-funded article to be published in fall 2015. Although we will look for additional funding, at this point we are no longer accepting applications for grants to develop research tools and articles. However, we encourage authors to submit completed articles and digital resources to be considered for publication in the journal.

To submit an article for possible inclusion in the DHAH series, please refer to steps 1 and 2 of the article submission guidelines.

In addition to items a–f of the submission checklist, authors should also include:
g. a means of accessing the digital resource that will accompany the manuscript (a link, for example);
h. a two-page proposal for how the author plans to present the article and resource within the NCAW framework (technologies used, layout, etc.).

The Managing Editor and/or the DHAH Project Manager will review each submitted manuscript as soon as possible and forward it to one or two peer reviewers (unless they feel the manuscript has serious problems, in which case they will return it to the author before peer review).

If, after peer review, the article is accepted, the author(s) will receive comments and suggestions for changes (if any). The author(s) will also consult with the DHAH project manager on the schedule and timeline for production of the article.

In all cases, the editors will attempt to inform the author(s) of the article's status within two months of receipt.

The areas of investigation in which NCAW is interested include, but are by no means limited to, the following:

Data Mining and Analysis:
Use of data analytics programs (e.g., Gephi, Network Workbench) to investigate connections among particular groups or individuals, such as artists, writers, art dealers, art markets and other networks of exchange (social networks)

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Mapping:
Use of maps in concert with data sets (e.g., depictions of sites, location of objects, paths of travel) in order to investigate and communicate change over time and space

High-Resolution imaging and dynamic image presentation:
Use of panoramic and/or high-resolution imagery to view, for example, panoramas, conservation images (x-ray, infrared reflectography), or moving images. Also articles which are accompanied by digital facsimiles of longer works, such as albums and sketchbooks, as in, for example, the Spring 13 article "'In the Park': Lewis Miller's Chronicle of American Landscape at Mid-Century."
