type of journal we hope to become. It is wide ranging and

The inaugural issue took longer than we anticipated to put together; we appreciate the patience of all involved.
For 2005 and 2006, DM will be published semi-annually: fall 2005 (late November), spring 2006 (late March), and fall 2006 (late November). The spring 2006 issue will feature articles from the summer 2005 conference season; the fall 2006 issue will focus on pioneering digital projects and the early history of humanities computing by medievalists. The fall 2005 issue has no set theme, but will contain a number of publications from the summer 2004 conference season. Confirmed contributors to these forthcoming issues include:
