ACM Journal homepages are now seamlessly integrated into the Digital Library

Last week, we showed you how article pages in the ACM Digital Library now include informational and interactive features that maximize the value of the content you read. Now we’d like to acquaint you with how all ACM journal homepages are hosted in the new ACM DL, allowing you to browse research articles in any of ACM’s peer-reviewed journals with more cohesion and context.

When you select the “Journals” tab on the main navigation menu, you’ll see a table of links to the homepages of ACM’s 50+ scholarly peer-reviewed journals that cover dozens of computing and information technology disciplines. When you click on a journal to go to its homepage, you’ll see a description of that publication’s coverage scope, links to its social media profiles, and a button allowing you to subscribe to alerts when the journal publishes new issues and articles. You will also find a menu bar containing links to information for authors, including instructions for preparing and submitting manuscripts, criteria for acceptance, links to submission sites and more. Listings of authors and editors, as well as information for reviewers, are also available here.

Below this, you’ll see data similar to the data displayed on the article and author pages: bibliometrics including publication counts, citation counts, and number of articles available for download, the journal’s most frequent affiliations and top cited authors, and a word cloud displaying the subject areas most frequently covered in that journal. Scrolling down, you’ll see a summary of the journal’s most recent issue with links to articles, followed by a list of its contributors who have received ACM awards, and the journal’s most downloaded and cited articles of all time.

We invite you to explore these features at DLnext.acm.org on your desktop, tablet and mobile devices. As always, please let us know what you think by using the feedback button on the DLNext beta site, or contact us via email at dl-team@hq.acm.org or via Twitter @ACMDL.
