Aims and scope

The Annals of K-Theory has been established to serve as the premier journal in K-theory and associated areas of mathematics. These include areas of algebraic geometry, homological algebra, category theory, geometry, functional analysis, and algebraic topology, encompassing such topics as cyclic homology, motivic homotopy theory, KK-theory, index theory, and more. The journal welcomes strong submissions in all areas in which K-theory concepts or methodology play a role.

The content of Annals of K-Theory, and the editorial process, is managed by the K-Theory Foundation, Inc. (KTF), a nonprofit organization run by mathematicians for mathematicians. The income produced by the journal will be used by the KTF to fund activities benefiting the K-theory community, such as conferences, summer schools, and prizes for deserving young mathematicians. The KTF is grateful to the Foundation Compositio Mathematica for its support in helping to get the journal up and running. The Foundation Compositio Mathematica and MSP, the publisher of AKT, are also nonprofit organizations run by mathematicians for mathematicians.

Ethics and policies

Information about the journal's editorial principles, its policies for authors, the handling of complaints and appeals, and copyright and licensing can be found here.

Peer-review process

This journal operates a single-anonymized review process (the names of the reviewers are hidden from the author). You can read about the peer-review process, including expectations and responsibilities for the journal and for reviewers, here.

Publication schedule

Annals of K-Theory publishes 4 issues per year, for an expected total of about 600 pages.


Journal access and fees

Access to the journal is by subscription. All articles become free to access and read six years past publication (meaning on the sixth January 1st after the publication date). The journal does not charge any author fees.

Preservation of access

To ensure the long-term availability of our published online content, MSP is a member of CLOCKSS and of the Global LOCKSS Network.

About the publisher

The journal is published by MSP (Mathematical Sciences Publishers), alongside other top journals. MSP is a nonprofit who believes that fair-priced scholar-led subscription journals remain the best stewards of quality and fairness, and strives to offer the highest quality at the lowest sustainable prices. MSP also developed EditFlow, the popular peer-review web application.
