Orbita Mathematicae is the new journal of the Unión Matemática de América Latina y el Caribe (UMALCA).

Orbita in Classical Latin originally meant, “the track left by a wheel or a way well-worn by one's ancestors”. The Renaissance brought another meaning to this word: “the path of a celestial body when it revolves around another body due to their mutual gravitational attraction”. Finally, modern times added yet another meaning to the Latin Orbita: “the sphere of influence”. The title of the journal reflects the historical evolution of mathematics. All sciences are understood, nowadays, to belong to the Orbita Mathematicae.

The journal Orbita Mathematicae publishes original research articles of the highest level and aims position itself among the most prestigious international mathematics journals.


OM 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.
