RePEc (Research Papers in Economics)

RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) is a collaborative effort of hundreds of volunteers in 73 countries to enhance the dissemination of research in economics. You may add your own materials to RePEc through a department or institutional archive. All institutions, nonprofit and commercial, are welcome to join and contribute their materials by establishing and maintaining their own RePEc archive. If your institution does not yet participate in RePEc, you may submit your own papers to MPRA (the Munich Personal RePEc Archive), and they will automatically be included in RePEc. RePEc does not support personal archives: only institutional archives. The heart of the project is a decentralized database of working papers, journal articles and software components. All RePEc material is freely available. Participation in RePEc as a provider only involves the cost of your time in preparing and maintaining metadata describing your p ublications. RePEc collaborates with the American Economic Association’s EconLit database to provide content from leading universities’ working paper series to EconLit. If your university does not contribute its working paper series to RePEc, please contact us for assistance, or view the “step by step” instructions at IDEAS. Please note that RePEc does not contain full-text journal articles. RePEc services provide links to many full-text articles, but you may need a personal or institutional subscription to follow those links. If a working paper or journal article is not indicated as “downloadable”, please contact the author, publisher or your local library for assistance. We cannot provide full texts on request.

Digital Medievalist University of Lethbridge
Digital Medievalist (DM) is our on-line, refereed Journal. DM accepts work of original research and scholarship, notes on technological topics (markup and stylesheets, tools and software, etc.), commentary pieces discussing developments in the field, bibliographic and review articles, and project reports. All contributions are reviewed by authorities in humanities computing prior to publication. Contributions to DM should concern topics likely to be of interest to medievalists working with digital media, though they need not be exclusively medieval in focus. They should be of a length appropriate to the subject under discussion; in most instances this means between 1,000 and 10,000 words.
