- Scientific publication cycle
- Knee, Michael. Internet Reference Sources for Computing and Computer Science: A Selected Guide. Journal of Library Administration, 44(1/2) 2006: 453-473.
- Some interesting articles/posts on CS scholarly publishing
- 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
The Library Home Page
Steacie Library Home Page!
- 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
These online databases can also be found in the eResources Quick Links or Search boxes on the library home page.
Article Citation 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
- Scholars Portal Journals — very general, lots of obscure journals
- 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!
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
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
Resources on Where to Publish
- Citation tracking & journal “impact”
- Open Access publishers where the library subsidizes author fees
- Other Open Access resources
Using Resources on the Internet
Using the Internet Wisely
- Using Google as 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
