Mission statement

The International Journal for Digital Art History (DAHJ) is a young and successful peer reviewed journal for digital art history. With over 20,000 pdf downloads per year, it rivals established journals. Its success is based on academic excellence paired with methodological innovation and a global scholarship framework. Enjoy and join our community of art historians, informations scientists, and media artists:

The journal seeks to gather current developments in the field of Digital Art History world-wide and to foster discourse on the subject both from Art History and Information Science. The Digital Age has revolutionized economy, society and our private lives. For decades now, digitalization has also touched most branches of the humanities. With the rising importance of the so called Digital Humanities, Art History is at the brink of new ways of accessing its material and gaining unprecedented insights.

Many approaches are currently evolving in the international sphere of Art History and many questions still remain unanswered: What requirements does Art History have towards Information Technology? What projects do exist that can serve as best practice? Which direction does Art History go from here? How can we build an international community to reach our shared goals in research?

Thus, DAHJ gives authors in this field the opportunity to reach a wider audience, spark a discussion on the future of our discipline and generate an international and interdisciplinary network of scholars and practitioners. The journal is edited in order to gather articles around a common theme in each issue. In addition it is peer reviewed by at least two reviewers in a double-blind process. It is published online and in print. Contributions are welcome. For information on the current Call for Manuscripts and further information for authors, please see the respective pages on this website.

We are proud to cooperate with arthistoricum.net, who provides the editorial Open Journal System (OJS), DOIs, and URNs. This partnership secures long-term archiving of all articles and allows authors of DAHJ to submit supplementary materials, such as videos, 3D models and data sets, as online resources (hosted at HeiDATA Dataverse Network).
