And your Assignment is!
Due date: Wednesday October 23th, 11:59pm.
- send and email to email@example.com (jdupuis at yorku dot ca)
- Subject line *must* have CSE 1001 in it.
- Please include your name and student number.
What: Pick any CSE related topic and send me 4 references related to that topic
- 1 book (print or ebook) that is available via the York Libraries (include catalogue url)
- 1 journal article that is available via the York Libraries
- 1 conference proceeding article that is available via the York Libraries
- 1 site on the open web
Note: For the journal and conference article, I want an example of an article inside the journal or conference, not the name of the whole journal or conference.
- In the email, list your topic then all four citations one after another
- If the database has an exportable citation format (including BibTex), that is fine. The library catalogue does have one.
- If not, use the Citation Machine and either APA or MLA format.
- Online sources must have a URL that I can click on campus to access the item
- For the book, please give the link to the catalogue record, if available
- The web source must be one that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to include in an assignment. In other words, fairly current and from a reliable source.

- Some interesting articles/posts on CS scholarly publishing
- Rebooting the CS Publication Process
- Confronting the myth of rapid obsolescence in computing research
- Revisiting the Publication Culture in Computing Research
- Time for computer science to grow up
- Open, Closed or Clopen Access?
- Conferences vs. Journals in Computing Research
- An interesting publishing model
- Kinds of documents:
- patents: government granted license to an invention
- standards: agreed upon methodology: ie 802.11
- journals: research results presented in a periodical/magazine
- conference proceedings: research results presented at a meeting
(most conferences in CS are peer-reviewed)
- technical report: description of a solution to a specific problem
- reference: encyclopedias, tables, data collections, properties
- manuals: lab methods, programming languages, operating systems
- monographs: general topics
- technical specifications: how a device or component works, ie
- code library: database of source code listings or linkable
- Peer review: researchers validating each others work before publication
- Academic Integrity & Plagiarism web site.

Finding Resources at the Library
Finding Books & Journals
- Do a search in The York Catalogue:
- by title: Concurrent programming in Java : design principles and patterns
- by author: Bjarne Stroustrup
- by journal title: journal of the acm
- by subject: Java
- by subject: concurrent programming, parallel programming, parallel
- by keyword: concurrent and programming and java
Online Computer Books
- Safari — over 200 online computer / technical books on a wide range of subjects.
- Synthesis — amazing collection of CS & Engineering ebooks, more advanced topics
- Books24x7 — EngineeringPro & ITPro
- Scholars Portal eBooks – a great big pile of ebooks
These online databases can also be found in the eResources Quick Links or Search boxes on the library home page.
Full Text Article Databases
- ACM Digital Library — Best resource: All ACM journals & proceedings
- IEEE Xplore — All IEEE journals & proceedings, more engineering than CS
- SPIE Digital Library — has all the SPIE Proceedings and journals in full text
- Lecture Notes in Computer Science — Also includes LN in Bioinformatics, Mathematics, Physics, and other areas. Source of articles from various conference proceedings, find citations from Web of Science or INSPEC
- Scholars Portal Journals — very general, lots of obscure journals
Article Citation Databases
And on the open web…
- Using Googleas a scholarly research tool:
- example: concurrent programming
- example: concurrent programming locking
- example: concurrent programming locking algorithm
- example: concurrent programming locking algorithm java
- strategy: find good portal sites
- strategy: make sure you know exactly who produced the content
- DBLP — good CS index of free web & many conferences & journals
- Citeseer — indexes the free web
- Computing Research Repository (CoRR) — eprints and other online papers
- Collection of Computer Science bibliographies
- Google Scholar
- And others…
Subscription library databases…
- INSPEC– best source for citations in all computing fields, best for comprehensive searches (combined with Compendex)
- concurrent and aerospace and programming
- concurrent and locking and java
- Web of Science– Very good coverage of all major computing journals, good for citation searches
- concurrent and locking and java
- Scopus — another good general database with citation information
- ACM Guide to Computing Literature — Another one focusing on computing
- VERY IMPORTANT: look in full text article databases for conference
- IEEE, ACM or Lecture Notes in Computer Science: look in DBs below
- SPIE: keyword search in catalogue: SPIE and proceeding #
- Other: keyword search with part of title
- Last resort: 50-75% of conference papers usually on author’s home pages
- Remember, you have 50 free article requests!
