The Roberto Busa Prize is an award of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO). It is named in honour of Father Roberta Busa, the first pioneer of humanities computing, who in 1949 began experiments in linguistic automation, with the support of the IBM offices in New York and Milan, as part of his analytical research on the writings of Thomas Aquinas. The computational work was central to the thirty years of research whose published output was the 56-volume Index Thomisticus, completed in 1980.

DHQuarterly starts 2017 with some great news - the journal is now indexed in Thomson Reuters' Web of Science, in the Emerging Sources Citation Index.
One of the most frequent queries DHQ gets is "What is your Impact Factor?". The digital humanities journal does not yet have one. IFs are generated by Thomson Reuters. It is very hard for an independently published, open access journal to get an IF.
