Facilitating Innovation & Discovery
ACM’s high-impact, peer-reviewed journals publish emerging and established computing research for both practical and theoretical applications. Available in print and online, these subscription-based scholarly journals offer content of the highest scientific quality in their respective fields. Taken together they constitute a vast and comprehensive archive of computing innovation that includes data mining and management, architecture and accessibility, programming languages and software engineering, graphics and networking, Internet and Web technology, computational logic and storage issues, and computer-human interaction among many other specialties.
ACM publishes more than 50 scholarly peer-reviewed journals in dozens of computing and information technology disciplines. ACM journal editors are thought leaders in their fields, and ACM’s emphasis on rapid publication ensures minimal delay in communication of exciting new ideas and discoveries.

Introducing Proceedings of the ACM
What is PACM?
Proceedings of the ACM on X (PACM) is a new journal series with first issues planned for 2017. This series is suitable for those ACM SIG-sponsored conferences that adapt their review processes to be comparable to those of journals. It has been launched in recognition of the fact that conference-centric publishing disadvantages the CS community with respect to other scientific disciplines when competing with researchers from other disciplines for top science awards and career progression, and the fact that top ACM conferences have demonstrated high quality and high impact on the field.
The new series will adhere to the following principles:
- Clear documentation of review process and policy;
Minimum of three expert reviewers with written reviews;
Reviewers may be drawn from outside the conference Program Committee;
Minimum of two-cycle review with opportunity for major revisions reviewed by same reviewers;
Specific provisions for conflict-of-interest.
