ACM Transactions on Graphics
(TOG) is a quarterly scientific journal that aims to disseminate the latest findings of note in the field of computer graphics. It has been published since the 1970s by the Association for Computing Machinery
. Starting in 2003, all papers accepted for presentation at the annual SIGGRAPH
conference are printed in a special summer issue of the journal.
The journal is described as follows on the ACM Digital Library website:
"ACM Transactions on Graphics (TOG) is the foremost peer-reviewed journal in graphics field. In the colorful pages of TOG, leading researchers discuss breakthroughs in computer-aided design, synthetic image generation, rendering, solid modeling and other areas. "Research," the largest regular section, is necessary intellectual nourishment for anyone implementing graphics systems."
The current editor-in-chief is John Hart of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
The journal's is estimated to be the 89th most impactful
journal in the field of computer science as of May 2003. In the whole field of computer science it was located at the top 7.28% percentile.
This was prior to the merger of the SIGGraph (9th most impactful and top 0.73% percentile as of 2003) and ACM Transaction on Graphics publications that began in 2003.
The ranking of computer graphics publications within the general field of computer science is as follows :
