Dive into ACM's magazines in the new ACM Digital Library

Last week, we showed you how the “Books” section of the new DL lets you easily explore ACM Books -- a series of scholarly research monographs and graduate-level texts. Now we’d like to introduce you to the “Magazines” section, and how you can use it to discover more about ACM’s seven magazines. From ACM's flagship magazine, Communications of the ACM to XRDS, ACM's magazine written and edited by and for students, these publications deliver compelling features that keep readers coming back month after month.

When you visit the Magazines section of the ACM Digital Library, you will see each title presented in a carousel at the top of the page. Hovering over any magazine cover image and clicking “Read More” will bring you to the landing page in the DL dedicated to this magazine. There, at the top of the page, you will see a description of the magazine, its Editors-in-Chief, a button to subscribe to TOC alerts when the magazine publishes new issues, and a link to the magazine’s website.

Below this, you’ll find bibliometric data on the magazine, including its publication years, number of issues available for download, citation count and more. Scroll down to view additional information including a word cloud of the subject areas the magazine covers, its most frequent institutional affiliations, most cited authors, and a TOC of the magazine’s latest issue.

As always, we invite you to explore these features at DLnext.acm.org on your desktop, tablet and mobile devices. 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.
