Publishing in Computer Science

Most STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields prioritize publishing research in journal articles, but conference papers are particularly important in computer science. This is an important difference in scholarly practice to keep in mind while researching computer science topics.  Computer scientists do also publish journal articles, and some conference proceedings series are treated as if they are a journal, by publishers. You can obtain both sorts of publications through LITS databases.
