    Computer Science Periodicals

    Scholarly journals are usually considered the most important primary source of information in the sciences. The three major functions of scientific communication are establishing intellectual property, evaluating work through the peer-review process, and serving as a vehicle for disseminating information.

    The ACM Digital Library
    This is a full-text collection of every article published by the Association for Computing Machinery, including 50 years of archives. The collection includes journals, magazines, transactions, proceedings, newsletters, publications of special interest groups, and publications of affiliated organizations.
