Publish Your Next Book in the ACM Digital Library

ACM launches new book series aimed at meeting needs of evolving Computer Science field

ACM is accepting proposals for a new publishing venture aimed at filling the need for scholarly computer science literature. This new series, called ACM Books, will complement other recent additions to scientific publications, but will present its computing topics in far greater depth and detail, and address areas not covered by monographs or papers from other publishers. The series will include books from across the entire spectrum of computer science subject matter and will appeal to computing practitioners, researchers, educators, and students. The books, to be published beginning in the first half of 2014, will also be available on multiple devices including mobile applications, and in print format.

All of the titles will be accessible from the ACM Digital Library, subscribed to by nearly 3,000 academic and corporate libraries, and accessed by more than 1.25 million computing professionals worldwide. In addition, ACM partner Morgan & Claypool will make the titles available in a wide range of commercial eBook platforms including Amazon, iBooks, and Barnes & Noble.  The books will use a digital-first model to appeal to the growing global computing community, including authors, researchers, practitioners, educators, and students. Print editions will also be available, utilizing the most cutting-edge digital print-on-demand technology available.

M. Tamer Özsu is Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Books Series.  He will be aided by an international Editorial Board of computing luminaries from prestigious institutions of higher learning, who represent major subject areas in computer science and engineering.  As topic editors, they will review all proposals relevant to their respective fields.
