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. These include
finite algebraic geometry,
finite and combinatorial geometry,
generalized polygons and other rank-2 geometries,
geometry of groups,
incidence geometric aspects of algebraic combinatorics,
projective and affine planes,
Tits-buildings and diagram geometries,
IIG was first published at
Ghent University in 2005.
MSP started publishing it in 2018.
A Short History of IIG
The first volume of the journal Innovations in Incidence Geometry
appeared in 2005, now almost 13 years ago, and developed from a journal
only known to insiders to a highly regarded journal which is often cited
inside and outside the community of people working in incidence
During all those years, it was run on a mostly voluntary
basis, and the practical work of copy-editing and monitoring submissions
was taken care of by ourselves.
As the number of submissions increased,
this resulted in a heavier working load, which unfortunately also
resulted in some substantial delays in publishing some of the latest
volumes of the journal.
For these reasons, we decided to find a suitable respectable publishing
house that could take over the administrative work from us and at the
same time use its experience to bring our journal to a higher level,
including making it better known and making it more attractive for authors.
We are truly delighted that MSP (Mathematical Sciences Publishers) has
agreed to take up the gauntlet.
We can be assured that this will help
bringing the journal to a next stage.
To emphasize the fact that this is
more than just a continuation of the journal by a new publisher, we
have, at the same time, extended the journal's name, which now reads
“Innovations in Incidence Geometry: algebraic, combinatorial and
topological”, and therefore aims to attract a wider audience.
also correspondingly modified the board of editors and editors-in-chief.
We are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration with MSP over the
many years to come!

MSP is a nonprofit who
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
the popular peer-review web application.
