  "abstract": "<p>The use of computing tools and methods has irreversibly impacted the creation, use and communication of research. As a result, a still divisive movement of Digital Humanities has emerged over the last few decades. This paper attempts to provide a theoretical contribution to the discussion of the core fundamentals of the field. In order to do so, it takes a sample of papers indexed under Library and Information Science, in the Web of Knowledge database, and studies them using a quantitative data analysis and a qualitative literature review combined with the author&rsquo;s personal reflection to illustrate the main research topics. The notion of scholarly primitives provides the background for the theoretical analysis. It is concluded that digital humanities embody a community patterned by collaborative and shared networks of communication, where digital tools amplify research possibilities without changing the humanistic values of its practitioners.</p>",
