Since 1994, ACM has been preparing to shift all its publication operations from paper-only to electronic distribution from a structured database. The first-phase computer system to support this will begin receiving author manuscripts in early 1996 and will store them in SGML format from which printed versions and electronic versions can be generated. ACM is doing this to accommodate shifts in author and reader practices that are emerging in the world-wide Internet. With this copyright policy, ACM aligns itself with those practices and becomes the first scientific publisher to adopt copyright policies for cyberspace.
