Aims and scope

Involve your students in research

Involve showcases and encourages high-quality mathematical research involving students from all academic levels. The editorial board consists of mathematical scientists committed to nurturing student participation in research.

Submissions in all mathematical areas are encouraged. All manuscripts accepted for publication in Involve are considered publishable in quality journals in their respective fields, and include a minimum of one-third student authorship. Submissions should include substantial faculty input; faculty co-authorship is required. The submission (and accompanying cover letter) should in all cases come from a faculty member.

Involve, bridging the gap between the extremes of purely undergraduate-research journals and mainstream research journals, provides a venue to mathematicians wishing to encourage the creative involvement of students.

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

Involve publishes 5 issues per year, for an expected total of about 900 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.


Authors may submit manuscripts in PDF format here.

Authors should follow these submission guidelines.

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.
