Retention of Paper Files
(This policy was adopted at the Publications Board meeting on October 11, 2000)
EiCs and associate editors need hold on to paper files (appropriately culled) of processed submissions for five years, after which time they should be sent to ACM HQ, which will archive them for another seven years. Of course, an editor may decide to hold on to some sensitive material even longer. For material of historical interest, a copy should be made for ACM HQ.
You can use your technical skills for social good and offer volunteer support on software development projects to organizations who could not otherwise afford it. SocialCoder connects volunteer programmers/software developers with registered charities and helps match them to suitable projects based on their skills, experience, and the causes they care about. Learn more about ACM’s new partnership with SocialCoder, and how you can get involved.
Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.
