This is an COMPLETE bibliography of publications in the quarterly journal Annals of the History of Computing (CODEN AHCOE5, ISSN 0164-1239), which began publishing with volume 1, number 1, in July 1979. The journal was published by the American Federation of Information Processing Societies (AFIPS).
BibTeX; bibliography; Annals of the History of Computing
Author Comments:
Publication ceased with volume 13, number 4, in 1991, but was continued in 1992 as volume 14, number 1, of the IEEE Annals of the History of Computing (CODEN IAHCEX, ISSN 1058-6180). That journal is covered in a companion bibliography, ieeeannhistcomput.bib. The two journals have a joint Web site at
This bibliography was prepared by merging data from the TeX Users Group bibliography archive, the BibNet Project archive, the OCLC Contents1st database, the Compendex database, and the huge Karlsruhe computer science bibliography archive. At version 1.02, another 67 entries were added from an extensive Web page search.
At version 2.00, data from the IEEE Annals of the History of Computing Web site covering this predecessor journal completely was merged in. The journal text of more than 155 articles was checked to correct errors or to complete missing information.
During this work, several instances of missing article were uncovered in the IEEE archives; it is expected that a few more such articles remain undiscovered. The Tables of Contents for volumes 1–10 in bibliography entry Anonymous:1988:TYT were responsible for some of these discoveries. I have yet to check the contents of volumes 11–14 for further discrepancies.
Book reviews in this journal are often detailed and lengthy. In some cases, they have been included twice, once in a collected entry, and once with the individual review. Similar remarks apply to the Comments and Biographies entries.
Books that received only cursory mention in reviews (often listed in a section ``Capsule Reviews'') are not listed in the bibliography entries, although, ultimately, it would be possible to extract them from the article text.
This bibliography also contains entries for books on the history of computing, and article reprints therein, and for all of the articles and books listed in review titles, since they too record part of the history of this field. Entries are often provided for multiple editions of these books.
