From 1 March 2021 Transactions will operate with a new editorial board, positioning the journal as a high-quality fully open-access publication compliant with the growing number of institutional and funder mandates requiring open access publication including Plan S, which comes into force from January 2021.
It continues to welcome papers of a general or specialised nature that represent a significant advance in mathematical knowledge, as well as submissions that are deemed to stimulate new interest and research activity.
The TLMS Managing Editor, José Rodrigo, has formed a new editorial board of leading experts across mathematics, with Caucher Birkar, Amin Coja-Oghlan, Charles Fefferman, Alessio Figalli, Jelena Grbic, Martin Hairer, Heather Harrington, John King, Jessica Purcell, Carola Schönlieb, Sebastian van Strien, Marcelo Viana, Juncheng Wei and Sarah Zerbes having agreed to serve.
The current joint Editorial Board of the LMS journals will continue to receive new submissions for the Bulletin and the Journal.
Papers submitted to the Transactions prior to 1 March 2021 will continue to be handled by the existing Board and decisions for acceptance will be held against the same criteria that were in place at the time of submission.
An increasing number of authors now have access to funds to fully cover article processing charges (APCs) through agreements made between their institution or funding agency and Wiley. This includes many researchers based in the UK, Austria, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Norway and Sweden (a list of funders and institutions which offer support for APCs can be found on Wiley’s website: http://tiny.cc/OA_agreements).
These charges support the cost of managing and publishing the Transactions, with surplus income from all of the Society’s publications used in support of mathematicians and mathematics research. It is however the Society’s intention that no author be turned away owing to funding constraints, those without access to institutional support having their article costs met through alternative means.
