ACM Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage (JOCCH) publishes papers of significant and lasting value in all areas relating to the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in support of Cultural Heritage. The journal encourages the submission of manuscripts that demonstrate innovative use of technology for the discovery, analysis, interpretation and presentation of cultural material, as well as manuscripts that illustrate applications in the Cultural Heritage sector that challenge the computational technologies and suggest new research opportunities in computer science.
The field Cultural Heritage spans many distinct sub-areas, which may be divided into two major classifications: tangible heritage, such as the discovery, documentation, organization, interpretation and communication of artifacts, monuments, sites, museums, and collections (including digital archives, catalogues and libraries); and intangible heritage, such as music, performance, storytelling, and mythology. In addition, the increasing volume of digital cultural artifacts and collections is becoming an important body of heritage content in its own right. Submissions that have led to actual cultural applications are particularly welcomed.

** News on ORCID **
ACM is endorsing ORCID, a community-based effort to create a global registry of unique researcher identifiers for the purpose of ensuring proper attribution of works to their creators. JOCCH authors are invited to create an ORCID unique researcher identifier (see at http://about.orcid.org/about/what-is-orcid ) and to add this id at submission time.
** News on Impact Factor **
The journal Impact Factor (IF) is produced by ISI (http://thomsonreuters.com/journal-citation-reports/). A necessary condition is having a record of timely publication of the journal issues. I am happy to announce that JOCCH followed a regular publishing score in the last two years and therefore we will start soon the procedure for requesting the ISI IF certification.
Many potential contributors have asked me for info on the JOCCH IF score. Recently I noticed that ACM JOCCH is cited and measured on SCImago (http://www.scimagojr.com/journalsearch.php?q=19400157014&tip=sid&clean=0). SCImago reports "Cites per Doc.(2y)"= 1.68. This "Cites per Doc.(2y)" figure measures the scientific impact of an average article published in the journal; according to their web site, this figure is computed using the same formula adopted by ISI for journal Impact Factor™ Thomson Reuters.
