Digital Philology is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of medieval texts and cultures. Publishing two issues per year, the journal aims to foster new research that challenges traditional fields of study, national boundaries, and periodizations, that introduces new methods of engaging with medieval materiality, and that advances the applied and theoretical promise of the digital humanities.
Submissions must be original work written in English, follow the 17th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style (2017), and be between 6,000 and 9,000 words in length (excluding abstract, footnotes, list of works cited, and list of manuscripts cited). Quotations in the main text in languages other than English need to appear along with their English translation. Non-simultaneous submission is expected.
Inquiries, article submissions, and proposals for special issues should be sent to the Executive Editor, Deborah McGrady, at firstname.lastname@example.org “Digital Philology Inquiry/Submission” indicated in the Subject Heading. Correspondence regarding digital projects and publications for review may be addressed to Timothy Stinson at email@example.com.

The preliminary review for Digital Philology begins with the editor reviewing the submission to determine suitability for the journal, originality and importance of contribution to Medieval Studies, and adherence to a minimum standard of quality. The editor may turn to board members or qualified reader to assist in this initial review. Thereafter, articles are subject to a double-blind review by two readers. As regards Special Issues, the general practice is to solicit referees to review the issue as a whole. Thereafter, authors in both special and regular issues are asked to make revisions in four to twelve weeks’ time, depending on the extent of changes needed. If revisions are minor, the editor alone will reread and confirm changes before proceeding with publication. If a submission needs to be revised and resubmitted, one of the initial referees will be asked to review the new version. The timetable to publication varies as to whether speaking of a guest-edited issue or an individual article, but the goal is for publication to occur within one year of acceptance.
