Computer Science, CIS: Scholarly Research


Here is a brief list of some computer science-related periodicals:

Want to see a list of all periodicals we have on ACS-related subjects? Here are the most helpful subjects to start with:

Artificial intelligence

Augmented reality - we don't have periodicals dedicated to this, but we do have books.

Computer science

Electronic apparatus and appliances (that's a librarian's way of saying "electronics").

Electronic data processing

Embedded computer systems & Computer firmware (try "Internet of things" too - we don't have any periodicals dedicated to the internet of things, but we do have books).

Human-computer interaction

Information technology

Interactive multimedia

Prototypes, engineering (engineering of prototypes, like for 3D printing)

Python - we don't have periodicals dedicated to this, but we do have books

Software engineering

System design

User interfaces (Computer systems)

Virtual reality

Want to see all the subjects above in one big list? Let's call it the: "ACS special brew".

You can use these subjects to find books, too! Just click on any one, then uncheck the "journal, magazine" filter on the left hand side.

Databases for CS Research

The following databases will help you locate periodical literature and images related to applied computer science (including scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles).

Finding the Full Text of articles

While many of your search results will include "full-text" (meaning the actual article, not just a summary/abstract), others have only an abstract.  So, what do you do when you find an article that is exactly what you need, but the database does not have PDF or HTML links for the full text?

If this happens, look for this icon: 

That button will search all of our other databases, and our print periodicals too, and tell you if the article is available through our library (and where to find it). 

If you get this message:

this means that the library does not have access to this article at all. If that happens, you can still request the article through Interlibrary Loan and we'll get it for you from another library.  Just click the "Request this item" button, or fill out a blank form here, or ask a librarian for help.
