Our Journals

Our re­search journ­als aim to cov­er a wide breadth of math­em­at­ics and re­lated fields, from our es­tab­lished titles like Geo­metry & To­po­logy and rising stars like Al­gebra & Num­ber The­ory and Ana­lys­is & PDE, to mech­an­ics and com­pu­ta­tion. We sup­port the early in­volve­ment of stu­dents in qual­ity math­em­at­ic­al re­search with our journ­al In­volve, and de­vel­op­ments in ap­plied math­em­at­ics with Com­mu­nic­a­tions in Ap­plied Math­em­at­ics and Com­pu­ta­tion­al Sci­ence. En­gin­eer­ing and ma­ter­i­als sci­ence have a home in the Journ­al of Mech­an­ics of Ma­ter­i­als and Struc­tures.

Sub­scrip­tions to our journ­als can also be ob­tained at a dis­count as part of our pack­ages.

Associate Journals

We also col­lab­or­ate with in­de­pend­ent pub­lic­a­tions, tak­ing care of their pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion needs so that their ed­it­ors and man­agers can fo­cus on con­tent. Our ser­vices are tailored to the journ­al’s spe­cif­ic needs; for ex­ample, we pub­lish the Pa­cific Journ­al of Math­em­at­ics, and handle sub­scrip­tions for the An­nals of Math­em­at­ics.

This se­lect group of part­ner journ­als has been joined by the open-ac­cess Math­em­at­ics and Mech­an­ics of Com­plex Sys­tems, a new in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary journ­al foun­ded in 2013, and the Journ­al of Soft­ware and Geo­metry.

Algebra & Number Theory

msp.​org/​ant

ANT’s broad defin­i­tion of al­gebra and num­ber the­ory al­lows it to print high-qual­ity re­search cov­er­ing a wide range of sub­top­ics, in­clud­ing al­geb­ra­ic and arith­met­ic geo­metry. ANT pub­lishes high-qual­ity art­icles of in­terest to a broad read­er­ship, at a level sur­pass­ing all but the top four or five math­em­at­ics journ­als.

In 2015, ANT will pub­lish 10 is­sues for an ex­pec­ted total of about 2,500 pages. The num­ber of qual­ity pa­pers ac­cep­ted by ANT has grown, but an elec­tron­ic sub­scrip­tion still costs about 10¢ per page.

Algebraic & Geometric Topology

msp.​org/​agt

AGT pub­lishes pa­pers in all areas of al­geb­ra­ic and geo­met­ric to­po­logy. Foun­ded in 2001, AGT is now a prom­in­ent journ­al in its field, its high stand­ards and rig­or­ous ed­it­or­i­al pro­cess at­tract­ing an ever-in­creas­ing num­ber of ex­cel­lent sub­mis­sions. AGT has an im­pact factor reg­u­larly pla­cing in the top third of all journ­als.

In 2015, AGT will pub­lish 5 is­sues, for an ex­pec­ted total of more than 3,125 pages. An elec­tron­ic sub­scrip­tion costs about 11¢ per page.

Analysis & PDE

msp.​org/​apde

Foun­ded six years ago, AP­DE aims to be the lead­ing spe­cial­ized schol­arly pub­lic­a­tion in math­em­at­ic­al ana­lys­is. The full ed­it­or­i­al board votes on all art­icles, ac­count­ing for the journ­al’s ex­cep­tion­ally high stand­ard and en­sur­ing its broad pro­file.

In 2015, AP­DE will pub­lish 8 is­sues, for a total of about 2,050 pages. The num­ber of qual­ity pa­pers ac­cep­ted by AP­DE has grown, but an elec­tron­ic sub­scrip­tion still costs about 10¢ per page.

Communications in Applied Mathematics and Computational Science

msp.​org/​camcos

CAM­CoS ac­cepts in­nov­at­ive pa­pers in all areas where math­em­at­ics and ap­plic­a­tions in­ter­act. In par­tic­u­lar, the journ­al wel­comes pa­pers where an idea is fol­lowed from be­gin­ning to end — from an ab­stract be­gin­ning to a piece of soft­ware, or from a com­pu­ta­tion­al ob­ser­va­tion to a math­em­at­ic­al the­ory.

CAM­CoS pub­lishes one or two is­sue per year, for an ex­pec­ted total of at least 200 pages.

Geometry & Topology

msp.​org/​gt

Pub­lished since 1997, GT is the lead­ing journ­al in its field, pub­lish­ing more of the best pa­pers in geo­metry and to­po­logy than any oth­er journ­al. GT en­sures high qual­ity by re­quir­ing that the three board ed­it­ors stand per­son­ally be­hind every ac­cep­ted pa­per, the pro­poser and two second­ers.

In 2015, GT will pub­lish 5 is­sues, for an ex­pec­ted total of about 3,125 pages.

Involve, a Journal of Mathematics

Involve your students in research
msp.​org/​involve

In­volve show­cases and en­cour­ages high-qual­ity math­em­at­ic­al re­search in­volving stu­dents from all aca­dem­ic levels. The ed­it­or­i­al board con­sists of math­em­at­ic­al sci­ent­ists com­mit­ted to nur­tur­ing stu­dent par­ti­cip­a­tion in re­search.

Sub­mis­sions in all math­em­at­ic­al areas are en­cour­aged. All manuscripts ac­cep­ted for pub­lic­a­tion in In­volve are con­sidered pub­lish­able in qual­ity journ­als in their re­spect­ive fields, and in­clude a min­im­um of one-third stu­dent au­thor­ship. Sub­mis­sions should in­clude sub­stan­tial fac­ulty in­put; fac­ulty co-au­thor­ship is en­cour­aged.

Bridging the gap between the ex­tremes of purely un­der­gradu­ate-re­search journ­als and main­stream re­search journ­als, In­volve provides a ven­ue to math­em­aticians wish­ing to en­cour­age the cre­at­ive in­volve­ment of stu­dents. In­volve is a great re­source for in­spir­ing math­em­at­ic­al ex­plor­a­tion in a new gen­er­a­tion, and an op­por­tun­ity for stu­dents who are ser­i­ous about their re­search.

In 2015 In­volve will pub­lish 5 is­sues, for an ex­pec­ted total of about 900 pages,

Journal of Mechanics of Materials and Structures

msp.​org/​jomms

JoMMS pub­lishes in­nov­at­ive re­search in the mech­an­ics of ma­ter­i­als and de­form­able struc­tures, a field that is ex­per­i­en­cing con­sid­er­able growth in new dir­ec­tions. JoMMS cov­ers the de­vel­op­ment of new tech­no­lo­gies, which re­quire mul­tidiscip­lin­ary sim­u­la­tion and draw from all areas of en­gin­eer­ing, ma­ter­i­als, and bio­logy.

Foun­ded by Charles R. Steele and Mar­ie-Louise Steele, JoMMS has had in mind from the be­gin­ning the needs of the aca­dem­ic and en­gin­eer­ing com­munit­ies it serves. Thor­ough ref­er­ee­ing en­sures high stand­ards, and skilled edit­ing after ac­cept­ance helps com­mu­nic­a­tion by non-nat­ive Eng­lish speak­ers — a ser­vice that most pub­lish­ers have dis­con­tin­ued. There are no page charges and no charges for col­or fig­ures or sup­ple­ment­ary ma­ter­i­als, such as in­cluded an­im­a­tions or data sets.

JoMMS pub­lishes 5 is­sues per year, for an ex­pec­ted total of about 750 pages in 2015.

MSP col­lab­or­ates with in­de­pend­ent journ­als. De­pend­ing on their needs, we share our ex­pert­ise, high-qual­ity pro­duc­tion or sub­scrip­tion-man­age­ment skills, and soft­ware.

Annals of Mathematics

The premier mathematics research journal
annals.​math.​princeton.​edu

An­nals is com­mit­ted to its role as the premi­er pure-math­em­at­ics re­search journ­al, and to pub­lish­ing at the low­est eco­nom­ic­ally pos­sible price. An­nals has pub­lished the proof of Fer­mat’s Last The­or­em, the the­or­et­ic­al part of a proof of Kepler’s sphere-pack­ing Con­jec­ture, and a proof that one can test prim­al­ity in poly­no­mi­al time.

An­nals pub­lishes 6 is­sues per year, for an ex­pec­ted total of more than 2,400 pages. Per page, it is the least ex­pens­ive of all top journ­als (in­deed, lead­ing so­ci­ety journ­als are 50% more ex­pens­ive, lead­ing uni­versity-press journ­als are at least 3 times more ex­pens­ive, and lead­ing com­mer­cial journ­als are 3 to 10 times more ex­pens­ive).

An­nals is a pub­lic­a­tion of the De­part­ment of Math­em­at­ics at Prin­ceton Uni­versity with the co­oper­a­tion of the In­sti­tute for Ad­vanced Study.

Journal of Software for Algebra and Geometry NEW

msp.​org/​jsag

JSAG is an elec­tron­ic-only journ­al de­voted to short art­icles on soft­ware re­lated to re­search in al­gebra and geo­metry. Each short art­icle (typ­ic­ally not to ex­ceed five prin­ted pages, in­clud­ing ref­er­ences) will be ac­com­pan­ied by the ap­pro­pri­ate source code. The aim is to pro­mote the de­vel­op­ment of good code and free soft­ware for the math­em­at­ic­al re­search com­munity. Based on peer-re­view re­ports and tech­nic­al re­ports, the art­icles are ac­cep­ted or re­jec­ted by the ed­it­or­i­al board through a pro­cess of on­line dis­cus­sion and con­sensus. JSAG was first pub­lished in 2009, and MSP star­ted pro­du­cing it in 2014.

Mathematics and Mechanics of Complex Systems NEW

msp.​org/​memocs

MEMOCS is a free and open-ac­cess, no-au­thor-fee, peer-re­viewed journ­al.

MEMOCS is a pub­lic­a­tion of the In­ter­na­tion­al Re­search Cen­ter for the Math­em­at­ics and Mech­an­ics of Com­plex Sys­tems at the Uni­versità dell’Aquila (Italy). It pub­lishes art­icles from di­verse sci­entif­ic fields with a spe­cif­ic em­phas­is on mech­an­ics. Art­icles must rely on the ap­plic­a­tion or de­vel­op­ment of rig­or­ous math­em­at­ic­al meth­ods.

The journ­al in­tends to foster a mul­tidiscip­lin­ary ap­proach to know­ledge firmly based on math­em­at­ic­al found­a­tions. It will serve as a for­um where sci­ent­ists from dif­fer­ent dis­cip­lines meet to share a com­mon, ra­tion­al vis­ion of sci­ence and tech­no­logy. It in­tends to sup­port and di­vulge re­search whose primary goal is to de­vel­op math­em­at­ic­al meth­ods and tools for the study of com­plex­ity.

The journ­al will also foster and pub­lish ori­gin­al re­search in re­lated areas of math­em­at­ics of proven ap­plic­ab­il­ity, such as vari­ation­al meth­ods, nu­mer­ic­al meth­ods, and op­tim­iz­a­tion tech­niques. Be­sides their in­trins­ic in­terest, such treat­ments can be­come heur­ist­ic and epi­stem­o­lo­gic­al tools for fur­ther in­vest­ig­a­tions, and provide meth­ods for de­riv­ing pre­dic­tions from pos­tu­lated the­or­ies. Pa­pers fo­cus­ing on and cla­ri­fy­ing as­pects of the his­tory of math­em­at­ics and sci­ence are also wel­come. All meth­od­o­lo­gies and points of view, if rig­or­ously ap­plied, will be con­sidered.

The Fine Print

Elec­tron­ic ac­cess to past is­sues of a journ­al is in­cluded with every sub­scrip­tion to that journ­al, as long as a sub­scrip­tion is main­tained. We do not of­fer print-only sub­scrip­tions, only elec­tron­ic and elec­tron­ic+print. Sub­scrip­tions are offered for the cal­en­dar year only. Elec­tron­ic ac­cess al­lowed based on sub­mit­ted IP-ad­dress range. Sep­ar­ate cam­puses of an in­sti­tu­tion that are not with­in the same city or geo­graph­ic­ally close must be covered by sep­ar­ate sub­scrip­tions, or might be eli­gible for con­sor­ti­um pri­cing, at MSP’s dis­cre­tion.

All art­icles pub­lished by MSP be­come open ac­cess after at most five years past pub­lic­a­tion. Spe­cific­ally, all elec­tron­ic con­tent be­comes free and open ac­cess as fol­lows: 5 years after pub­lic­a­tion for AGT, ANT, AP­DE, GT, In­volve and PJM; 3 years after pub­lic­a­tion for CAM­CoS and JoMMS. Here, “n years after pub­lic­a­tion” means the n-th Janu­ary after the pub­lic­a­tion date. An­nals, while not pub­lished by MSP, also be­comes open ac­cess after 5 years. Fi­nally, MEMOCS and JSAG are dia­mond open ac­cess pub­lic­a­tions (free to read, free to pub­lish).

MSP is a CLOCKSS mem­ber.
