Submissions to the TALG is done electronically through http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/talg. Once you are at that site, you will be asked to create an account and password with which you can enter the ACM Manuscript Central manuscript review tracking system. From a drop-down list of journals, choose Transactions on Algorithms and proceed to the Author Center to submit your manuscript and other accompanying files.
You will be asked to create an abstract that will be used throughout the system as a synopsis of your paper. You will also be asked to classify your submission using the ACM Computing Classification System through a link provided at the Author Center. For completeness, please select at least one primary-level classification followed by two secondary-level classifications. To make the process easier, you may cut and paste from the list. Remember, you, the author, know best which area and sub-areas are covered by your paper; in addition to clarifying the area where your paper belongs, classification often helps in quickly identifying suitable reviewers for your paper. So it is important that you provide as thorough a classification of your paper as possible.
For editorial review, the manuscript should be submitted as a PDF or Postscript file.
