The Chicago Journal of Theoretical Computer Science is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal in theoretical computer science. Articles are submitted and published in LaTeX source form, and distributed internationally over the InterNet. Articles are augmented by refereed forward references to improvements and subsequent related work. Readers may obtain articles through FTP, and HTTP (World Wide Web). Other widely used network tools will be supported as they arise in the future. The Journal is committed to minimizing publication delays, and to promoting maximum flexibility in the ways that readers use the journal for teaching, research, and scholarship. Access to articles is open, but we depend on subscriptions to support journal operations.

CJTCS has a new policy of free access to all articles. We still depend on voluntary subscriptions to support journal operations. We are in the process of updating online documentation to reflect this change.
Authors, please use pic, epic, and eepic as much as possible for drawings in figures and tables. eepic provides very flexible curve-drawing features, and can produce almost any line drawing. You may use the xfig program to prepare drawings through a GUI interface. See the author instructions for more detail. Use encapsulated PostScript only as a last resort: it is much harder to edit than the recommended formats.
Online discussion of the journal is now available, using HyperNews. There is also a separate online discussion for each published article.
A Special Issue on Self-Stabilization is in progress. We will continue to consider submissions of exceptional merit.
