Links naar een aantal interessante tijdschriften, met een stukje ‘blurb’ van de website van de tijdschriften:

(Er zijn nogal wat grensgevallen: bijvoorbeeld tijdschriften die zich vooral richten op educatieve toepassingen van de technologie, tijdschriften over het Internet, tijdschriften over computers en schrijven, etc.)

D-Lib Magazine
“D-Lib Magazine is a solely electronic publication with a primary focus on digital library research and development, including but not limited to new technologies, applications, and contextual social and economic issues. The magazine is published eleven times a year and is released monthly, except for the July and August issues which are combined and released in July. The full contents of the magazine, including all back issues, are available free of charge at the D-Lib web site ( as well as multiple mirror sites around the world.

The primary goal of the magazine is timely and efficient information exchange for the digital library community. To meet this goal, both the articles and the shorter pieces are solicited or selected from among unsolicited submissions”.

“Kairos is a refereed online journal exploring the intersections of rhetoric, technology, and pedagogy. Each issue presents varied perspectives on special topics such as “Critical Issues in Computers and Writing,” “Technology and the Face of Language Arts in the K-12 Classroom,” and “Hypertext Fiction/Hypertext Poetry.”

In Kairos, we publish “webtexts,” which are texts authored specifically for publication on the World Wide Web. These webtexts include scholarly examinations of large-scale issues related to special topics, individual and collaborative reviews of books and media, news and announcements of interest, interactive exchanges about previous Kairos publications, and extended interviews with leading scholars.

With Kairos, we seek to push boundaries in academic publishing at the same time we strive to bridge the gap between print and digital publishing cultures. We further seek to bring forward and support the voices of those too often marginalized in the academy, especially graduate students and adjunct and other part-time faculty”.

Journal of Electronic Publishing

“Electronic publishing is changing the world we live in. It is changing what publishers do. It is changing the way scientists, business people, and students — all of us — work.

In this environment of change and uncertainty, the publisher faces many challenges: details such as Web design, server management, pricing (and collecting the revenue!) as well as the big policy questions.

The Journal of Electronic Publishing is for the thoughtful forward-thinking publisher, librarian, scholar, or author — in fact, anyone in this new business — facing those challenges. We aim to range widely in our coverage, but the emphasis will be on the broader issues that should shape policy, and on professional, scientific or academic publishing, both books and journals.

JEP faces the same problems as any electronic publication, and we intend to make a virtue of that by using the Journal as a testbed to try ideas and to show to you, our readers, what happens when we do. We hope for successes, of course, but we will report on our failures, too”.

(Het Journal of Electronic Publishing lijkt overigens van de aardbodem verdwenen).

Journal of Digital Information
“The JoDI vision established by the editors is to be:

(a) a prestige site for papers
(b) a linking ‘hub’ for other Web services and information
(c) self financing
(d) low cost to the reader
(e) easily accessible


JoDI has introduced a unique theme-based editorial structure as a means of managing and integrating papers within its broad scope. Each theme has a theme editor. Themes could evolve to become journals within a journal, but will act cooperatively rather than competitively, and papers are interlinked and cross-indexed for ease of access”.

First Monday
“First Monday is one of the first peer–reviewed journals on the Internet, solely devoted to the Internet”.

Human IT
“Journal for Information Technology Studies as a Human Science”.

“Ariadne Magazine is targeted principally at information science professionals in academia, and also to interested lay people both in and beyond the Higher Education community. Its main geographic focus is the UK, but it is widely read in the US and worldwide.

The magazine has as its principal goal to report on information service developments and information networking issues worldwide, keeping the busy practitioner abreast of current digital library initiatives. It has reported in depth to the information community at large on progress and developments within the UK Electronic Libraries Programme since its inception, and now additionally reports on newer JISC-funded programmes and services, including the DNER, the JISC Information Environment, and the RDN”.

Jahrbuch für Computerphilologie – online
“Das Jahrbuch für Computerphilologie – online bietet ein Forum für die Diskussion der vielfältigen Möglichkeiten, den Computer in der literaturwissenschaftlichen Arbeit einzusetzen: z.B. für die computergestützte Inhaltsanalyse und Stiluntersuchung, für computerunterstützte und elektronische Editionen, für digitale Fachinformationen, Hypertexterstellung und -analyse u.a.m.

Der größere Teil der hier erscheinenden Aufsätze und Rezensionen wird auch im Jahrbuch für Computerphilologie (mentis Verlag) veröffentlicht. Die Online-Version der Texte und deren Druckfasssung sind nach der Veröffentlichung des Jahrbuchs textidentisch”.

RLG DigiNews
“RLG DigiNews is a bimonthly electronic newsletter that focuses on digitization and digital preservation. If you have a research collection that you are digitizing, you’ll find this report indispensable for its articles on evolving practices and technology, new projects and publications, and events”.
