Once a manuscript is accepted, authors must be certain the final version of their manuscript is uploaded to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/talg for transmission to ACM for publication. This will prevent any possible version confusion. Author communication will then move from the Associate Editor to someone assigned to the author from the post-acceptance production process at ACM. He/she will contact authors directly regarding copyediting and any changes required to prepare for publication.
The final version of an accepted paper must be formatted using the ACM style files, which can be accessed at
Copyright and Use Agreement
New options for ACM authors to manage rights and permissions for their work: ACM introduces a new publishing license agreement, an updated copyright transfer agreement, and a new author-pays option which allows for perpetual open access through the ACM Digital Library. For more information, visit the ACM Author Rights webpage.
ACM Author-Izer Service
This new service extends ACM's support for self-archiving by enabling authors to generate and post links in their own bibliographies that they maintain on either their personal home page or institutional repository. These links will let any visitors to the author's bibliography pages download the definitive version of the articles for free from the ACM DL. A summary description of the service and instructions for its use may be found at http://www.acm.org/publications/acm-author-izer-service.
ACM no longer collects voluntary page charges.
