Is it possible to submit and publish a paper in the Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages (PACMPL) without attending any conference? Is PACMPL a journal that just publishes scientific papers which you can send to them?

Despite the extensive instructions on the LaTeX format that the publisher uses, I cannot find information on where and how to submit the paper.
I don't understand what you have to do to publish something in ACM.

    The first paragraph of the author guidelines says to submit based on an appropriate call for papers which are related to particular conferences.

For where and how to submit a manuscript, you must follow a CFP: call for papers unlike other 'normal' journals.


According to the Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages (PACMPL) website, about page, in reference to the inaugural editorial, PACMPL
"is designed to supplant conference publication by moving to a journal model. PACMPL will be comprised of special issues, each devoted to an area previously covered by a major conference."

This is rehashed on PACMPL site:
"Each issue of the journal is devoted to a particular subject area within programming languages and will be announced through publicized Calls for Papers"

Elsevier has its Procedia, while Springer has similar with the likes of LNCS

  • Thank you. So I wasted my time, because I started by adapting my paper to their Latex format guidelines. Now it turns out that I can't publish my paper there.
