Changes to the Proceedings

New Proceedings cover

Statement from the Managing Editors

Founded  in 1865, the Proceedings  of the London Mathematical Society is today seen by many as the flagship journal of the LMS. With the support of the LMS Publications Committee, we took on the task of elevating the position of the journal further and strengthening its position with relation to other top-flight mathematics journals.

The first step in this endeavour has been to appoint an Editorial Board of leading international experts, including Nalini Anantharaman, Hélène Esnault, Bryna Kra, James McKernan, Manuel del Pino, Raphaël Rouquier, Scott Sheffield, Anna Wienhard and Daniel T. Wise.

The Editorial Board has been selected to attract articles of the highest quality and significance across a broad spectrum of mathematics, and the editorial procedures have been designed to help ensure submissions are dealt with in an efficient and timely manner.

From 1 March 2019, this new Editorial Board will begin handling submissions to the Proceedings, and will hold them to the highest standards. More details on the submission process and the link to submit can be found on the Proceedings homepage.

The current joint Editorial Board of the LMS journals will continue to receive new submissions for the Bulletin, Journal and Transactions. Furthermore, papers which were submitted to the Proceedings prior to 1 March 2019 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.

After 1 March, papers which would previously have been submitted to the Proceedings  will now be welcomed by the Journal.

We ask the mathematical community to support this exciting new chapter by considering submitting to Proceedings any forthcoming papers that will help secure the uplift in quality for which we are striving.
