### ToCT is a Go

The ACM Transactions on Computation Theory, with yours truly as Editor-in-Chief, is now accepting submissions.
ACM Transactions on Computation Theory will cover theoretical computer science complementing the scope of the ACM Transactions on Algorithms and the ACM Transactions on Computational Logic including, but not limited to, computational complexity, foundations of cryptography, randomness in computing, coding theory, models of computation including parallel, distributed and quantum and other emerging models, computational learning theory, theoretical computer science aspects of areas such as databases, information retrieval, economic models and networks.
The journal will be available online on the ACM Digital Library and to those who are SIGACT Members ($18/year which also gives you access to STOC proceedings, ACM Transactions on Algorithms and SIGACT News). We have an excellent editorial board awaiting your papers. So either go to the ToCT web page or directly to the submission server, submit your papers, and come in on the ground floor of what will be one of the great theory journals. #### 7 comments: 1. This is good. Add a few more such journals (say Transactions on Computational Geometry) and soon there won't be any reason left to publish with overpriced, for-profit journals. 2. It's a shame it's not open-access... What's the point of the$18 charge??

3. Are they interested in algorithms papers at all? I do not see the word algorithms in the "Aims and Scope" description.

4. The idea of ToCT is to complement the Transactions on Algorithms. While some papers might be appropriate for either journal, pure algorithmic paper should be sent to the ToA.

5. Excellent editorial board??

6. Excellent editorial board??
