Ethical Policy

The London Mathematical Society has recently adopted an ethical policy for its journals, including guidance on the expected behaviour of authors, referees and editors. The full policy can be found here.


This journal is compliant with the RCUK (Research Councils of the United Kingdom) Policy on Access to Research Outputs. Click here for details.

Some U.K. universities are using the SHERPA database  to decide on journal compliance, but that database does not reflect the true position regarding copyright on LMS journals, and U.K. authors should refer directly to our copyright policy and the new RCUK guidance. We are working with our publishing partners to get the SHERPA database corrected.

Aims and Scope

The aim of the LMS JCM is to publish internationally-leading papers addressing topics in computational pure and applied mathematics, including papers at the interface of Mathematics and Computer Science.

Read more about the LMS JCM aims and scope.


The LMS JCM  is a free online journal. For a summary of publishing rights and archiving policies for the LMS JCM, please see this fact sheet.

Guidelines for submission

Papers can be submitted electronically. See here for further details.

When preparing the paper for submission, authors are encouraged to use lms.cls, which can be found at the LMS general instructions for authors page. Upon acceptance, authors will agree to grant an exclusive licence to the Society. The copyright will remain with the authors. See the sample publishing agreement.

Published papers available online

Online access is FREE.

Further details
