Digital Library Platform and Features
The ACM Digital Library Platform is ACM’s own proprietary system that is wholly developed, hosted, and maintained by ACM. The system is built on open source technology in collaboration with volunteers from the scientific community and contains many of the most powerful search features available today.
- Powerful Search and Guided Navigation
- Seamless Integration between DL and Guide Index
- Most Comprehensive Database of Author Profiles, including detailed bibliometrics of nearly every author in the field
- A Complete List of Index Terms for each article based on the ACM’s widely used 2012 Computing Classification Scheme (CCS)
- Fully exportable citation pages in Endnote, BibTex, and ACM Ref formats
- Extensive use of DOIs with reference linking provided through CrossRef
- IP Authentication and Domain Name Look Up for Institutional Customers
- Supports Athens and Shibboleth authentication
- Open URL and SFX Compliant
- COUNTER III and SUSHI Compliant Usage Statistics
- Archiving and Long-Term Digital Preservation of all ACM-owned publications via Portico and CLOCKSS
ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” is your number one resource for keeping up with emerging developments in the world of theory and applying them to the challenges you face on a daily basis. RfP consistently serves up expert-curated guides to the best of CS research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. In this installment of RfP is by Nitesh Mor, a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley working on the next generation of globally distributed computer systems with a special focus on data security and privacy. Titled “Edge Computing,” this RfP gives an overview of some of the most exciting work being done in the area of computing infrastructures and applications. It provides an academic view of edge computing through samples of existing research whose applications will be highly relevant in the coming years.
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.
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.
