August Spotlight on Transactions in Computer
"Determining the Cause of Design Model Inconsistencies," the August 2014 Spotlight in Transactions column from Computer, highlights a breakthrough paper from the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering. John Gundy notes that the authors have "produced a major advance in inconsistency analysis—moving beyond just identifying a design inconsistency to accurately showing designers where the inconsistency originates."

What is the OnlinePlus publication model?
OnlinePlus is a hybrid of online-only and print, giving subscribers the best of both worlds—online access plus a printed book of article abstracts and a searchable interactive disk that allows readers to access content anywhere without an internet connection for less than a traditional print subscription.
Please watch this video tutorial for further details:
Which titles are using this model?
IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (print is also available)
Can I order a print copy of an issue?
You bet! Print copies of OnlinePlus titles can be ordered on demand directly from our Computer Society Digital Library. Read more.
