by Academy Admin

BCS, in association with external publishing partners, is involved in the publication of a number of journals and conference proceedings.

The Computer Journal

The Computer Journal, published in cooperation with OUP, is one of the longest-established journals serving all branches of the academic computer science community. It publishes high-quality papers and review articles and the latest ideas in computer science in four sections:

  • Section A: Computer Science Theory, Methods and Tools
  • Section B: Networks and Computer Systems
  • Section C: Computational Intelligence
  • Section D: Security in Computer Systems and Networks

Interacting with Computers

Interacting with Computers, published in cooperation with OUP, is an interdisciplinary journal of human-computer interaction. Publishing accessible, interdisciplinary research papers and cutting-edge thematic special issues, it is recognised as a leading international forum for the discussion of HCI issues. 

Formal Aspects of Computing

Formal Aspects of Computing
, published in cooperation with Springer, presents research and development results at the junction of computing theory and practice. Its principal aim is to promote the growth of computing science, to show its relation to practice and to stimulate applications of apposite formalisms to practical problems.


Innovation in Health Informatics 

The Journal of Innovation in Health Informatics (formerly Informatics in Primary Care) is the house journal of BCS Health. It publishes high-quality research papers, literature reviews and letters from both researchers and practitioners in the fields of social care, health and clinical informatics. Its focus is on informatics research from the front lines of health care and how informatics can support innovation in health and health care.

Electronic Workshops in Computing (eWIC)

The eWiC series is an open access publication, giving access to the proceedings of workshops and conferences on the broadest possible range of computing topics. Each volume is based on the proceedings of a specialist workshop and is designed to provide information that represents a snapshot of current knowledge, debate or research.

Distinguished Dissertations

The Distinguished Dissertations scheme aims to raise awareness of the significant contribution made by UK post-graduate students to computer science. Each year a small number of outstanding British PhD/ DPhil dissertations in computer science are selected by the Council of Professors and Heads of Computing (CPHC) in conjunction with BCS and the BCS Academy of Computing, and are then published on the BCS website.
