The DH Benelux journal publishes an annual volume of articles based on abstracts that were presented at DH Benelux conferences. This includes abstracts for panels, posters, and demos – given that they are sufficiently reworked to include a research hypothesis and (preliminary) results.

Therefore, all authors of abstracts that have been accepted for the most recent DH Benelux conference are invited to submit a full-length version of their DH Benelux presentation as an article for the next journal  issue. Articles can range from 4000-8000 words (including footnotes).

Timeline for the 2023 issue (volume 6):

  • Deadline for submission of extended abstracts: 25 September 2023
  • Deadline for submission of full articles: 2 October 2023, 23:59 CEST
  • First review period: October 2023 – December 2023
  • Notification of acceptance updated: 15 January 2024
  • First revision deadline updated: 1 March 2024
  • Second review period updated: March-April 2024
  • Second revision deadline updated: 1 May 2024
  • Final manuscript deadline updated: 1 June 2024
  • Journal articles online updated: 1 July 2024


Extended abstracts should include a short description of how the full article extends the accepted conference abstract, as well as the names and contact details of three potential reviewers with relevant expertise. These extended abstracts will not be reviewed but serve as a pre-submission registration to give us an idea of how many submissions to expect as well as give us time to approach reviewers. Extended abstracts are required: without an extended abstract, you cannot submit a full article.

Initial submissions of the extended abstract and full articles should be in PDF. Final versions of accepted articles must be submitted in LaTeX (see for submission details). Submissions should be sent to
