DM is the acronym for the Digital Medievalist Project. It is also the preferred abbreviation for the project's Journal, The Digital Medievalist.

DM (the journal) is a peer-reviewed, on-line scholarly journal. DM accepts work of original research and scholarship, notes on technological topics (markup and stylesheets, tools and software, etc.), commentary pieces discussing developments in the field, bibliographic and review articles, tutorials, and project reports. The journal also commissions reviews of books and major electronic sites and projects. All contributions are reviewed before publication by authorities in humanities computing.

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. They should be of a length appropriate to the subject under discussion. In most cases, this means between 5,000 and 10,000 words. Reviews should be approximately 1,000 words for single works; between 2,000 and 5,000 for review articles or reviews of more than one work.

DM currently is published twice a year: spring, and winter. The inaugural issue appeared in spring 2005. Beginning in 2006, the spring issue will feature conference papers from the previous summer alongside other research and reviews. DM reviews and accepts work on an on-going basis.
