New Resource: Peer Review in the GeoHumanities

Thanks to the Humanist email list for the posting below on the GeoHumanities and Peer Review.
The message and resource is of  interest for folks interested in/doing Geo and GIS work, with the message on additional resources for peer review in the GeoHumanities. To me, this seems particularly relevant for UF given the work of the Geospatial Task Force and the activities for greater campus-wide support for doing Geo/GIS. This also seems relevant for broader implications with peer review and crediting (e.g., citation, recognition during T&P review, etc.) for interdisciplinary work always a challenge, and where more discussions will help ensure better supports are in place across departments and fields for people undertaking GIS/Geo-related work. This resource and the CommentPress format offers an opportunity for some of the needed discussions, and it will be exciting to see what comes from the discussion!

Subject: Peer Review in the GeoHumanities – CommentPress now available
Dear Digital Humanists,
I am happy to announce that the content from the workshop and poster presented at DH2015 on “Exploring Peer Review in the GeoHumanities” is now up for public review.  As a reminder, this workshop was co-organized by myself, along with David Wrisley and our GeoHumanities SIG, co-chair, Karl Grossner.  We built upon existing DH Commons review and submission guidelines, adding a “geo-twist” to them by discussing some of the specificities of GeoHumanities work.
We are opening up the project to larger community consultation.  In the spirit of the original poster, we have created a CommentPress (see here: and you are invited to drop by, check it out and add your comments.  Comments gathered from the workshop and the poster session have been added already.  The closing date for this consultation will be Oct 31.  All those commenting will be acknowledged when we write up our results.
We appreciate the support from the DH Commons Editorial Board for the use of their base document as our springboard.
Please see here for further background information:
We look forward to your input,
Kathy Weimer
co-Chair, GeoHumanities SIG
