CRA advertises both text and display ads, which are disseminated in the following ways:

Each text ad:

Each display ad:
is posted in Computing Research News (CRN) for up to two consecutive issues.

Computing Research News is distributed electronically ten times a year: January, February, March, April, May, June, August, September, October and November. You must contact us before the 15th to request that your ad be placed in the next consecutive issue of CRN. It will NOT appear in the following month unless you select this option. The deadlines for each issue are:

December 15: January issue
January 15: February issue
February 15: March issue
March 15: April issue
April 15: May issue
May 15: June issue
July 15: August issue

September 15: October issue
October 15: November issue
*If a 2nd month posting is chosen, then the ad will appear in the month following the issue listed above.

Text ads will be posted on CRA’s jobs webpage shortly after you accept your ad quote. If you want your ad to be posted later, please let us know when you approve your ad.

Agency Commissions:

A discount of 15% of gross billing for supplied camera-ready ads (display ads) is allowed to recognized advertising agencies, provided the account is paid within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. Payment is due upon receipt of the invoice. Commissions are not allowed on text ads.

International Ads:

Please note that international ads must be prepaid before they are posted. Options for payment are: wire transfer (add a $30 processing fee) or credit card.
