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.

The DevOps Phenomenon

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. This installment, “The DevOps Phenomenon” by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald and Helmut Krcmar, gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving higher levels of stability.
