Innovations in Incidence Geometry — Algebraic, Topological and Combinatorial publishes carefully selected and peer-reviewed original research papers of the highest quality about all aspects of incidence geometry and its applications. These include

  • finite and combinatorial geometry,
  • rank-2 geometries,
  • geometry of groups,
  • Tits-buildings and diagram geometries,
  • incidence geometric aspects of algebraic geometry,
  • incidence geometric aspects of algebraic combinatorics,
  • computational aspects,
  • arrangements of hyperplanes,
  • abstract polytopes and convex polytopes,
  • tropical and F1 geometry,
  • Coxeter groups and root systems,
  • topological geometry,
  • applications of incidence geometry (including coding theory, cryptography, quantum information theory).

Innovations in Incidence Geometry was formerly published (without the subtitle) at Ghent University starting in 2005, and was adopted by MSP in 2018 at the request of the editors.

A Short History of IIG

The journal Innovations in Incidence Geometry (IIG) was an initiative of Jef Thas, Koen Thas, and Hendrik Van Maldeghem, and since its foundation in 2005 IIG has grown into a highly regarded journal, cited inside and outside the community of people working in incidence geometry.

Initially, IIG was published through Ghent University, with the practical work of copyediting and monitoring submissions being undertaken by the founding editors. As the journal grew we were delighted that IIG was taken under the wing of MSP (Mathematical Sciences Publishers) in 2018, with their experience taking the journal to a higher level. Indeed, to emphasise this development the name and scope of the journal was extended to “Innovations in Incidence Geometry: Algebraic, Combinatorial and Topological”.

In 2021 the managing editors passed the editorial responsibilities of IIG to a new board of managing editors. We, the new managing editors, are delighted by the opportunity. The scope of IIG has been further updated and expanded to reflect the growth in incidence geometry and its applications. We are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration with MSP over the many years to come!

IIG 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.

Impartiality Statement

The purpose of Innovations in Incidence Geometry 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.

Peer Review

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.
