Transactions on Graphics
ACM TOG is the foremost peer-reviewed journal in the area of computer graphics.
As illustrated below, the TOG journal has a strong synergy with ACM SIGGRAPH, the premiere conference organization in graphics. Of the six issues published by TOG each year, two are special issues containing the papers presented at the annual SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia conferences. Conversely, authors of papers published in the regular issues of TOG can present their work at either of these two conferences. Also, several paths provide reviewer continuity between the conference and the journal.
According to the 2006 journal impact factor analysis by Thomson Scientific, ACM TOG is the most-cited software journal among the 82 journals indexed.
And according to the 2008 data of eigenfactor.org, among the 88 journals in the category Computer Science, Software Engineering, TOG has the top ranking in both “Eigenfactor score” and “Article influence score”, ahead of other influential journals such as Journal of the ACM, Communications of the ACM, and IEEE Computer.
