Computing Reviews is happy to bring you the second annual list of notable items published in computing this time for 2013. This year, we reached out to many in the computing community for nominations: our reviewers, CR category editors, the editors in chief of journals we cover, and computer scientists in both industry and academia.
As we continue to improve our methods for collecting nominations and involve more of your peers in the computing community, we hope to bring you even more definitive lists in the coming years.
ACM Computing Reviews (CR) is a scientific journal that reviews literature in the field of computer science. It is published by the Association for Computing Machinery and the editor-in-chief is Carol Hutchins (New York University).
Every year, over 8,000 books, 2,500 dissertations, 20,000 journal articles from over 750 journal titles and over 30,000 conference papers from over 500 conferences are published in the field of computing. This does not include the thousands of master’s theses, technical reports, technical manuals, working papers, blog entries, presentations, or other materials published each year. Filtering this vast quantity of information is difficult and there are very few high quality resources available to help individuals to do this well. ACM Computing Reviews is such a resource.
The ACM Computing Reviews database is an essential companion product to the ACM Digital Library. Both databases are closely related and have been integrated to connect reviews to full text wherever possible.
