All manuscripts considered for publication in HEALTH must be prepared using the ACM template and submitted as a PDF via the Manuscript Central submission site at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/acmhealth.
HEALTH accepts submissions of Research, Challenge and Survey papers.
Research papers must include novel contributions to the computing related to healthcare and can be up to 30 pages.
A Challenge paper proposes key future vision and its challenges. For this type of submission, the 2-3 page paper must present a novel vision and associated research challenges that must be solved before the vision can be realized.
Survey papers can be up to 40 pages and can address single topics (e.g., computing for dementia) or the integration of topics (e.g., mobile and home healthcare).
By ACM policy, if you are submitting a conference paper extension, you must expand your paper by adding at least 25% new material. In addition, you must upload a copy of the conference paper and a statement that explains how your paper extends and provides new information as compared with the conference version.
Authoring templates can be found at http://www.acm.org/publications/authors/submissions. When using LaTeX, select "acmsmall".
An important aspect of preparing your paper for publication by ACM Press is to provide the proper indexing and retrieval information from the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS). This is beneficial to you because accurate categorization provides the reader with quick content reference, facilitating the search for related literature, as well as searches for your work in ACM's Digital Library and on other online resources.
ACM has partnered with International Science Editing (ISE) to provide language editing services to ACM authors. ISE offers a comprehensive range of services for authors including standard and premium English language editing, as well as illustration and translation services, and also has significant international outreach, especially in China. Editing is available for both Word and LaTeX files. As an ACM author, you will receive a generous discount on ISE editing services.

Once your manuscript is published, we recommend that you use the ACM Author-Izer service. This service allows you to generate and post a link on your home page or institutional repository to your published article. This link will let any visitors to your personal bibliography pages download the definitive version of the articles for free from the ACM DL. These downloads will be recorded as part of your DL usage statistics. A detailed description of the service and instructions for its use may be found at: http://www.acm.org/publications/acm-author-izer-service.
