The Journal of World-Historical Information has just released its first issue. This open-access, online journal centers on the materials and technology for developing a world-historical data resource. It aims at collaborative discussion across disciplines, to gather the best scholarly minds in the creation of Big Data in history. Its audience is to include scholars and practitioners in every field of history and social sciences, information science, the humanities and natural sciences.

The journal is edited by Patrick Manning (History, University of Pittsburgh), Ruth Mostern (History, University of California – Merced), and Vladimir Zadorozhny (Information Science, University of Pittsburgh). It is published twice annually by the World History Center and the University Library System of the University of Pittsburgh.

JWHI gives special emphasis to scholarly reviews of historical datasets. These reviews - - assessing published datasets in terms of their data, the technology of their presentation, and their historical significance - - will help achieve scholarly recognition for researchers who do the important work of assembling and documenting historical data.
