Studies in Digital Heritage (SDH) is a peer-reviewed academic journal established by the Office of Scholarly Publishing (OSP) and the Virtual World Heritage Lab at Indiana University. The mission of SDH is to promote the open exchange of information and knowledge among researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and others who strive to improve the collection, use, management, preservation and dissemination of Digitized Cultural Heritage. The vision of SDH is to be the premier forum where the scientific discussion among scholars can be developed, touching the entire gamut of Digital Heritage. SDH publishes peer-reviewed research articles and occasionally non-peer reviewed materials (e.g. interviews, editorials) with biannual frequency.

The objective is to create a snapshot of the current state of the art about transdisciplinary methodological approaches.
