CFP: Open Topic Issue of the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative

The Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative (JTEI, <http://jtei.revues.org/>) is the official peer-reviewed, open-access journal of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium. The objectives of the journal are to disseminate as widely as possible information about the TEI and its applications to scholarship. The Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative publishes state-of-the-art reports on electronic textual editing, current trends in TEI encoding, and new use cases for TEI. It provides a forum for articles on the discussion of the interface between the TEI and other communities, and more generally of the role of technological standards in the digital humanities.

Beginning in 2017, in an effort to shorten time from submission to publication, for both the conference and non-conference articles we will publish articles as soon as they are ready for publication in a new “Preview” (or “early access”) area, as is increasingly common with other online journals. URL and DOI remain unchanged when articles move from the Preview area to a specific issue.

We invite authors of TEI-related research to submit their results to journal.tei-c.org. Since its inception, the Journal of the TEI has provided a forum for articles on the discussion of the interface between the TEI and other communities, and more generally of the role of technological standards in the digital humanities, including digital scholarly editing, linguistic analysis, corpora creation, and newer areas such as mass digitization, semantic web research, and editing within virtual worlds.

Submissions are accepted in three categories that reflect the current state of TEI-related research and address the growing need for reference corpora and data sets:

  • Research papers:  Research papers document conceptual, theoretical, exploratory, and innovative work and include the apparatus one expects in a scholarly research paper: scholarly citations, footnotes, appropriate bibliography, etc.
  • Project / Tool Notes: Project/Tool notes are descriptive reports that detail detailing the accomplishments and contributions of a particular project, tool, encoding method, etc.
  • Data sets: Data sets are organized collections of TEI or related data that are accompanied by a short descriptive paper that describes the data set and its contribution to the the TEI and other scholarly communities. The data set must be published in a publicly accessible archive such as GitHub, TAPAS, or the Oxford Text Archive. The jTEI will not host the dataset, but will publish the descriptive paper along with a link to the data set.

Deadline: rolling deadline, articles will be accepted throughout the year and, once accepted, will be published in the Preview area and then included in the next available non-conference issue.

We encourage all authors to deposit pre-prints of their submissions in their home institutional repositories or a similar open access repository before they are published in the jTEI.
