Call for reviewers DH2019

15 Oct 2018 - 00:00

The DH2019 Program Committee, in line with ADHO’s conference protocol, has decided to extend the pool of reviewers of the DH2019 Conference in Utrecht.  We believe not only that an expanded reviewer pool will make the work of the PC easier and better -- also in consideration of the high numbers of proposals that we expect for the conference -- but also that reviewing for the conference is one of the most important ways of engaging our community and enabling deeper involvement in the conference and in ADHO organizations activities.

We would like to ask each ADHO CO/AO, SIG, Committee and to any DH organization worldwide to circulate this simple call for nominations of qualified reviewers.  Potential reviewers must meet at least two of the following reviewer requirements:

  • Be currently associated (or have been recently associated) professionally with an institutional DH program, project, or initiative within the last three years.

  • Hold at least a Master’s degree or equivalent in a DH-relevant discipline (including, but not limited to, the Humanities, Social or Natural Sciences, Library Science, Fine Arts, etc.).

  • Have presented at an ADHO-, CO/AO- or SIG-organized conference, symposium, colloquium, or equivalent.

  • Have published a DH-specific article or essay in a scholarly journal or volume (either print or electronic).

The Steering Committee approved the following wording in terms of ADHO’s ongoing efforts to support diversity and inclusion within our discipline:
“Nominations should reflect ADHO's mission and seem relevant to improve the diversity and inclusivity of the conference in consideration of language and gender. In putting forward a candidate, the nominator should be cognizant of and attentive to their own organization's statement of diversity.”
Please ask your nominees to submit their information and qualifications, and to indicate their willingness to serve as reviewers, by October 15, 2018 on this form:

Self-nominations are welcome.

We will review all nominees’ qualifications, compile a list of proposed reviewers, and submit it for final review and approval to the the CCC.

Approved reviewers will be contacted via ConfTool, ADHO’s conference management system, to confirm their willingness to participate and ask them to create or update their ConfTool user profile to include the language(s) in which they are proficient for evaluating professional work and their areas of expertise.

Thanks for your help, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
