About MSP

Building an alternative in science publishing

MSP is fo­cused on de­vel­op­ing soft­ware for pub­lish­ing, and on as­sist­ing and cre­at­ing top-level sci­entif­ic-re­search pub­lic­a­tions. We pub­lish more than 17,000 pages per year, and we strive to of­fer the highest qual­ity at the low­est sus­tain­able prices.

Not for Profit

We are a non­profit 501(c)(3) tax-ex­empt cor­por­a­tion, based in Ber­ke­ley, Cali­for­nia. We be­lieve sci­entif­ic pub­lish­ing should be an in­dustry that helps rather than hinders schol­arly activ­ity.

Our Mission  

Top-Quality Publishing

We pro­duce and dis­trib­ute sci­entif­ic and re­search lit­er­at­ure of the high­est qual­ity at the low­est sus­tain­able prices, cov­er­ing math­em­at­ics and oth­er se­lec­ted fields. Our out­stand­ing ed­it­or­i­al boards and highly se­lect­ive peer-re­view work­flows guar­an­tee the im­pact of the art­icles we pub­lish.

We provide the highest qual­ity of math­em­at­ic­ally lit­er­ate copy­ed­it­ing in the in­dustry. Pa­pers are ed­ited for gram­mar, con­sist­ency, and clar­ity of ex­pos­i­tion, with the math­em­at­ics laid out at high type­set­ting stand­ards.

Statement on Publishing Ethics


Our ded­ic­a­tion to qual­ity is com­ple­men­ted by our bold use of auto­ma­tion and soft­ware de­vel­op­ment, to re­duce the costs and in­crease the ef­fi­ciency of sci­entif­ic pub­lish­ing.

Giving Back

We’re glad to share our ex­pert­ise and soft­ware with ed­it­or­i­al boards, scho­l­ar­ly so­ci­­et­ies, and pub­lish­ers whose mis­sions are com­pat­ible with ours. MSP of­fers pub­lish­ing ser­vices: su­per­i­or journ­al, pro­ceed­ings and web­site pro­duc­tion and host­ing ser­vices, as well as a suc­cess­ful soft­ware ser­vice, Ed­it­Flow, for man­aging the ed­it­or­i­al work­flows of re­search journ­als.
