Publishing with DHNB
DHNB has two main types of publications: Books of DHNB conference abstracts and conference proceedings.
The DHNB bibliography, containing all abstracts, all full papers and all other publications by and about DHNB, was created and is actively maintained by Annika Rockenberger. The bibliography is available publicly on Zotero: https://www.zotero.org/groups/2503578/dhnb-bibliography (For a description and how to contribute, see the paper archived on Zenodo: https://zenodo.org/record/6337069).
DHNB Publications – Open Access Series by DHNB
The “Digital Humanities in the Nordic and Baltic Countries Publications” series was launched in 2023. This online series is a diamond open-access publication outlet for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences conferences, workshops, and other academic events mainly from, but not limited to, the Nordic and Baltic regions.

You must use the LaTeX template when submitting a full paper to a DHNB conference or a workshop that plans to produce proceedings.

Previous Conference Proceedings
The first conference was held in 2016 in Oslo; no proceedings were published from the inaugural conference.
In 2017, the DHN held its second conference in Gothenburg, Sweden, and a selection of long paper presentations was published in the open-access journal HumanIT as a themed issue in 2018, “Nordic Digital Resources and Practices.” It contained five papers and a guest editorial by the conference organisers.
From 2018 to 2020, DHN published three proceedings with CEUR workshop series, the diamond open-access proceedings for computer science workshops. The conference organisers edited the volumes containing peer-reviewed full-paper versions of long and short paper presentations and posters.
DHN2018 in Helsinki http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2084/
DHN2019 in Copenhagen http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2364/
DHN2020 in Riga http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2612/ had to be postponed and moved online during the COVID-19 pandemic. The organisers and the DHN Board decided to publish pre- and post-conference proceedings http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2865/, allowing additional submissions of peer-reviewed full papers of long and short papers and posters.
In 2022, DHN officially changed its name to Digital Humanities in the Nordic and Baltic Countries (DHNB), crediting the many contributions and strong representation from the Baltic countries.
DHNB2022 in Uppsala was the last conference to publish its proceedings with CEUR workshop series http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-3232/.
Three DH workshops organised at/in conjunction with DHNB conferences have published their proceedings with CEUR:
Twin Talks Workshop (colocated at DHN2019) https://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2365/
Twin Talks: Understanding and Facilitating Collaboration in Digital Humanities 2020 (colocated at DHN2020 and DH2020) https://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2717/
Digital Parliamentary Data in Action 2022 (colocated at DHNB2022), https://ceur-ws.org/Vol-3133/
A New Outlet for Conference and Other Publications
The organisers of DHNB2023 and the DHNB Board addressed the need for a more sustainable publication outlet for the annual conferences and other academic events, like workshops, within the expanding field of Digital Humanities and Social Sciences in the Nordic and Baltic regions.
They decided to establish a serial publication under the auspice of the DHNB Board, published, hosted and maintained at the University of Oslo Library. Each volume is edited by the conference organisers, while the editors-in-chief oversee the series.
This step will secure future conferences’ proceedings and strengthen the community by providing a platform for publishing Digital Humanities research that is openly accessible and findable.
