ANT’s inclusive definition of algebra and number theory allows it to print
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. It exists in both print and electronic forms.
The policies of ANT are set by the editorial
board — a group of working mathematicians — rather than by a
profit-oriented company, so they will remain friendly to
mathematicians' interests. In particular, they will promote broad
dissemination, easy electronic access, and permissive use of content
to the greatest extent compatible with survival of the journal.
All electronic content becomes free and open access 5 years after publication.

is the advancement of mathematics.
Editors evaluate submitted papers strictly on the basis of scientific merit
with the help of peer review reports,
without regard to authors’ nationality, country of residence,
institutional affiliation, gender, ethnic origin, religion, or political views.
This journal operates a single-anonymized review process (the names of the reviewers are hidden from the author).
All contributions will be initially assessed by an editor for suitability for the journal.
Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of one independent expert reviewer to assess the scientific quality of the paper.
The editors are responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles.
The editors’ decisions are final.
Editors are not involved in decisions about papers which they have written themselves.
