Top 5 most-viewed articles in PeerJ Computer Science in 2018

PeerJ Computer Science continues to offer a publication venue suitable for the unique research needs of the computer sciences community. Beyond the journal article, computer scientists require a journal to receive peer review and adequate recognition for their contributions in software creation, software testing, and software sharing.

By publishing cross-disciplinary research across the full spectrum of computer science, PeerJ Computer Science has encouraged more cross-fertilisation between fields and we hope to continue to grow as a hub for the computer science community as a whole.

In 2018, we were thrilled to be able to offer full fee waivers for PeerJ Computer Science articles and we will continue to waive article processing fees into 2019. If you are looking to receive rigorous peer review and publish your computer science research, now is a great time to submit your manuscript to PeerJ Computer Science!

The computer science community has long recognized the value of a modern publication process and we are proud to team up with a number of supportive partners over the years including USENIX – the Advanced Computing Systems Association, whereby their members and conference delegates are encouraged to publish their research in PeerJ Computer Science.
