What are the essential steps needed to plan and execute a digital project?

Beth Fischer (Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities at the Williams College Museum of Art) and Hannah Jacobs (Digital Humanities Specialist, Digital Art History & Visual Culture Research Lab, Duke University) have set out to gather and share this information with researchers and instructors in the early stages of digital project development. The outcome-in-progress is a peer-reviewed open resource we are designing to fill the gap between platform-specific tutorials and disciplinary discourse in digital humanities.

This web publication offers

  • guidance on workflows, resources, and computational principles;

  • topics applicable to many types of projects, including that arise in archival, dimensional, narrative, quantitative, spatial, temporal, and network visualization projects;

  • modular, downloadable content, allowing users to build custom annotated guides.
