Frontiers in Digital Humanities has arrived

Frontiers is pleased to announce the launch of a series of interdisciplinary open access journals across the whole spectrum of the humanities and social sciences.

The first to launch, Frontiers in Digital Humanities, will publish a range of article types across all research areas where computer science and the humanities intersect. All Digital Humanities specialties will be on a single open science platform. Further titles in the series include Frontiers in Economics and Frontiers in Management.


Frontiers is Open Science

Frontiers is an online platform for the scientific community to publish open-access articles and network with colleagues.

  • Fast, open-access publication
  • Rigorous peer-review in real-time thanks to our interactive, online interface
  • Detailed metrics to follow the impact of articles
  • A networking platform made especially for the scientific community

Publish your research with Frontiers and see your global impact




Activity and phylogenetic diversity of sulfate-reducing microorganisms in low-temperature subsurface fluids within the upper oceanic crust

The basaltic ocean crust is the largest aquifer system on Earth, yet the rates of biological activity in this environment are unknown. Low-temperature (<100°C) fluid samples were investigated from two borehole observatories in the Juan de Fuca Ridge (JFR) flank, representing a range of upper oceanic basement thermal and geochemical properties. Microbial sulfate...


Thin-skinned mass-wasting responsible for widespread deformation at Arenal volcano

The shape and stability of a volcano's edifice depends on the relationship between eruption rate and the loss or redistribution of material due to erosion, mass-wasting or deformation. This work provides measurements of deformation and shallow mass-wasting at a stratovolcano immediately after an extended period of growth, and demonstrates that high rates of deformation can be...


Forced-choice decision-making in modified trolley dilemma situations: a virtual reality and eye tracking study

Based on the frameworks of dual-process theories, we examined the interplay between intuitive and controlled cognitive processes related to moral and social judgments. In a virtual reality (VR) setting we performed an experiment investigating the progression from fast, automatic decisions towards more controlled decisions over multiple trials in the context of a sacrificing ...


Protein engineering and other bio-synthetic routes for bio-based materials: Current uses and potential applications

In the past 20 years protein engineering has been used for the production of proteins mostly for biological applications. The incorporation of artificial amino acids and chemical handles into proteins had made possible the design and production of protein-based materials like hybrid inorganic-organic materials, smart/responsive materials, monodisperse polymers...
