Scientific publishing should be an industry that helps rather than hinders scholarly activity. High-quality research demands high-quality communication — widely, rapidly and easily accessible to all — and MSP works to facilitate it.
Without shareholders to pay or a society to fund, every dollar that MSP earns is kept invested in our mission. Every page we publish is a page published by a scholar-led nonprofit, a page controlled by the math community, not a large commercial interest.
Efficient, intuitive and pleasant-to-use software service, for peer review and journal management.
Highly selective journals, showcasing your articles with the best editing and typesetting in the industry.
We are excited to have found an open-access model that is equitable and makes sense for mathematics. Starting with 2023, we are adopting the Subscribe to Open model for these journals:
- Geometry & Topology,
- Algebraic & Geometric Topology,
- Algebra & Number Theory,
- Analysis & PDE, and
- Pacific Journal of Mathematics.
Each year, if enough subscribers continue to support the journal, that year’s articles will be published open access — free to read by everyone and with no author charges. Read more about it here.
Starting with 2022, mindful of the hardships still faced by many institutions, MSP has implemented tiered pricing for its journal subscriptions. Institutions who are not in Carnegie group R1 (institutions of very high research activity) or who have a Shanghai rank below 500 will be offered a lower price. See here for a complete description and an explanation.
In pursuit of our mission, starting with the 2021 season we offer free electronic subscriptions to MSP-owned journals for accredited Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the United States.
We have recently launched PubliCast, a service that notifies readers of new research articles that we publish. You can opt to be notified by email when we publish an article in a subject category of your choice, or in an MSP journal of your choice, or even when MSP publishes an article that cites your work. Please sign up at publicast.msp.org.
