The series, which was established in 1973, now comprises approximately 200,000 articles, spanning various areas of computer science and information technology research and development.
Initially launched as a series focusing on theoretical computer science and research advances in Europe, LNCS now covers cutting-edge developments from across the globe.
The publication has attracted editorial contributions from prominent computer scientists such as Turing Award winners Edmund Clarke, E. Allen Emerson and Joseph Sifakis.
In the late 1990s, the series took on an online presence, providing the computer science community with an indexed, searchable portal to full-text electronic versions of current and previous volumes.
"Having reached the milestone of 5,000 volumes in the LNCS series, we at Springer wish to extend our gratitude to the global computer science research community for decades of excellent cooperation,” said Springer editorial director Alfred Hofmann in a release.
“Our long-standing relationship with so many individuals and organizations worldwide has resulted in this considerable publishing achievement," he said.
