George Porter: ACM Launches Two New Journals

.: The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has launched two new journals within the last month, ACM Transactions on Algorithms (TALG) and ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks (TOSN).

ACM Transaction on Algorithms is the long-awaited result of a mass resignation by the editorial board of Journal of Algorithms (JoA) over a long running pricing dispute with their publisher. [For additional background on the JoA->TALG story, read the STLQ posts Commentary: The Crisis In Scholary Communication, by George Porter and Journal of Algorithms Fallout Getting Noticed, Stanford U Takes Stand Against "Pricey Journals".]
