ACM Publishes New Series

ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) introduced ACM Books, a series of ebooks and print titles on computer science. The series is composed of graduate-level textbooks, research monographs exploring established and emerging fields, practitioner-level professional books, and books on the history and social impact of computing. Topics include software engineering, cloud computing, data management, and web engineering.

This series joins ACM’s journals and conference publications in providing content for researchers, practitioners, educators, and students on the ACM Digital Library content delivery platform. The series is published in collaboration with Morgan & Claypool Publishers, LLC.

“ACM Books will feature research surveys and graduate-level textbooks that reflect high-quality, innovative research in a wide area of computing and information technology,” says Scott Delman, ACM’s director of group publishing. “Authors will find a range of high quality services, including fast publication, affordable pricing, wide distribution, and easy accessibility via the ACM Digital Library as well as the prestige of publishing with ACM.”

An editorial board, led by editor-in-chief M. Tamer Özsu, acquires books for the series. “ACM Books will fill a unique space in the publishing domain,” according to Özsu. “Rather than focus on narrow topics, these books will target topics more broadly and address areas not covered elsewhere.  Our books will also expose the rich history of computing and the substantial global impact this field commands.”
