[With apologies for cross-posting.]

Dear all,

The centerNet Executive Committee seeks nominations for Advisory Board
members for its new publication, *DHCommons*, which will provide peer
review for mid-stage digital projects. *DHCommons* aims to provide a truly
global picture of the DH community. To that end, its leadership will be
comprised of members from each of centerNet’s regions.

The Advisory Board will join Co-Lead-Editor Ryan Cordell, a Co-Lead-Editor
from outside North America to be named soon, and Technical Editor Quinn
Dombrowski. The Board will be drawn from centerNet's regions and help
ensure the global vision of the *DHCommons*journal. To nominate someone to
the Advisory Board, please send an email to info at dhcommons.org with the
nominee’s name and affiliation, as well as a brief nominating statement
describing the scholar’s qualifications for the position. Self nominations
are permitted.

*DHCommons* is intended to address the “evaluation gap” between the Digital
Humanities and more traditional disciplinary scholarship. Digital projects
can often stretch over many years as a continuum of work—not necessarily
building to a finished project in the same way monographs do, though there
are significant milestones in a project's life. DH practitioners need
concrete ways to certify the value of long-standing, influential, but
unfinished projects to colleagues unfamiliar with the contours of DH work. *
DHCommons*aims to meet these challenges, pioneering a model of peer review
focused on mid-stage digital projects from around the world. With
Co-Editors-in-Chief and an international advisory drawn from each of
centerNet’s worldwide regions, By reviewing well-developed but unfinished
projects, *DHCommons* aims to foster a developmental model that will help
DH scholars hone their work while certifying the value of their projects to
both the DH field and to their home disciplines.
Best,
Neil
