Computers and the Humanities, during the quarter-century of its
existence, has consistently published work at the forefront of
computer applications in the humanities, including work on
literature of all periods and genres, languages and linguistics,
musicology, history, art history, and humanistically-oriented
social science.

Computers and the Humanities publishes reports on the latest
research in these areas, as well as pedagogical applications.
Occasionally special issues are published, allowing a thorough
coverage of particularly vital topics, such as natural language
processing, computer-assisted instruction, artificial
intelligence, and surveys of computing activities in such
countries as Canada, France and Italy.
