Digital humanities are everywhere. However, digital humanities not only promote new fields of research, but also a new kind of writing, because academic publications themselves are subject to digital humanities. Electronic publications that are going to be published on the internet differ from their printed predecessors in that they can not only be read but also be processed by a machine. This has considerable impact on the texts themselves, which thereby take on new functions. It also has impact on academic Publishing in general which is forced to adopt new production and distribution techniques. The first part of this essay is devoted to this new kind of writing, in that it analyses the technical and formal framework for digital publications. The second part entitled ‘Open Access- Open Source’ attempts to explore more broadly what electronic Publishing demands from and means to academic Publishing.
