dc.description.abstract Digital Humanities Now was an experimental, edited publication that highlighted and distributed informally published digital humanities scholarship and resources from the open web. Begun in November 2009, DHNow explored processes of aggregation, discovery, curation, and review to facilitate open and extend conversations about the digital humanities research and practice. DHNow was an experiment in contemporary scholarly communication practices, and served as a case study for the development of PressForward, a plugin for WordPress. DHNow aggregated potential content via RSS from a list of subscribed feeds, which included hundreds of venues where high-quality digital humanities scholarship was likely to appear, such as the personal websites of scholars, institutional sites, blogs, and other feeds—and was open for anyone to join. The project also sought out new material by monitoring Twitter and other social media for stories discussed by the community, and by continuously scanning the broader web through generalized and specialized search engines. Editors-at-Large also directly nominated content from their own networks. The aggregated material was reviewed, nominated, and discussed directly in the site’s WordPress installation using the PressForward plugin. Each week volunteer Editors-at-Large used the plugin to survey the incoming content from both subscribed feeds and their own networks and nominate content for broader dissemination through DHNow. Next, a rotating Editor-in-Chief selected content for publication on DHNow. The site manager then created a brief post on DHNow, linking back to the original content in order to direct attention, conversation, and site hits to the creator. en_US
