MSP (Mathematical Sciences Publishers) is focused on developing software for publishing, and on assisting and creating top-level scientific-research publications. We publish about 20,000 research pages per year, and we strive to offer the highest quality at the lowest sustainable prices.
We are a scholar-led nonprofit publisher. Without shareholders to pay or a society to fund, every dollar that MSP earns is kept invested in our mission: to serve the math community through high-quality publishing at low prices, and help others do the same. Every page we publish is a page controlled by the math community, not a large commercial interest.
We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation, based in Berkeley, California. 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.
We publish 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.
Top-level research deserves top-level production: 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.
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.
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.
