Computing Science & Engineering
Computer Science and Computer Engineering are related yet different.
The Encyclopedia of Computer Science defines computer science as “the systematic study of algorithmic processes that describe and transform information: their theory, analysis, design, efficiency, implementation and application.”
The Joint IEEE/ACM Curriculum Guidelines for Undergraduate Degree Programs in Computer Engineering published in December 2004 defines computer engineering as follows:
“Computer engineering is a discipline that embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment. Computer engineering has traditionally been viewed as a combination of both computer science (CS) and electrical engineering (EE).”
The book Using the Engineering Literature edited by Bonnie A. Osif (2006) sums it up quite well with this statement,
“the computer engineer’s primary goal is to implement theories developed by computer scientists to solve practical problems and create viable systems. This comparison is analogous to science and engineering in general: science often provides results that are significant to engineering.”
The Literature for Computing
According to “Computer Science and Computing: a guide to the literature” call no. Z5640.K68,
“Peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers are the foremost types of publications. Monographs, technical reports, and periodical articles follow closely in importance.”
Key publishers of computing literature include the Association of Computing Machinery, the IEEE Computer Society and Springer.
The Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) maintains the ACM Guide to Computing Literature. It is now a bibliographic database which integrates seamlessly with full-text articles published by ACM. Springer has the Lecture Notes in Computer Science, a sizeable collection of conference and workshop proceedings.

An academic journal is the dominant communication medium for disseminating and sharing research findings particularly in science and engineering.
When to use journal articles?
Journal articles may be useful when:
- Your topic is very recent
- The scope of your topic is very narrow
Journal articles may not be useful when:
- You need background or overview information
- The scope of your topic is very broad or covers a long time span
How to access journal articles?
Journals are issued on a regular frequency (e.g. monthly, quarterly, etc.). Each issue contains a number of individual journal articles.
There are generally 2 ways to find journal articles:
- If you want articles from a specific journal title — find the electronic or print copy and then download or read the articles within
- If you want articles on a topic or by an author across journals — search for them in relevant databases
1. Finding an electronic journal (e-journal)
- Go to the Library Homepage
- Click on e-journals under Finding Information
- Click on one of the search options
– Titles A to Z
– Titles by Providers / Publishers
– Free E-Journal Titles
This will bring you to the E-journal A-to-Z list. This is a search tool which gives you further options to search for journal titles.
You can search for a journal title by using title, publisher name or the subject search options. The search results will list one or more journal provider with the range of date / issues that it covers. Select the appropriate one.
A list of journal issues will be displayed. Select the desired issue to see the list of articles within.
2. Finding a print journal
We also have the print equivalent of some journals. Current print journals are physically located at Level 2 in Lee Wee Nam library. Bound journals (i.e. older issues) are at Level 5. You can browse the shelves to see what are available. Many older issues of journals are still not available in digital format, therefore it is good to know how to find them.
If you have a specific journal in mind, find the call number and location via the Library Catalogue. Search the journal title using the JOURNAL TITLE from the drop down menu.
Important Note: You cannot search for individual journal articles in the Library Catalogue. You need to use databases (see below) to do so. The Library Catalogue can only find journal titles.
3. Finding journal articles on a topic or by an author
Use a relevant database. A database indexes a variety of journals on a specific discipline or topic and makes them searchable by many fields such as keyword, title, subject, author, organization, etc. Therefore a search in a database will yield articles from many different journal titles.
