Changes to the Proceedings

New Proceedings cover

The first papers handled by the new, separate Editorial Board for the Proceedings have now been published online here in advance of the official relaunch in Jan 2021. 

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 began handling submissions to the Proceedings, holding 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. After 1 March, papers which would previously have been submitted to the Proceedings  will now be welcomed by the Journal which has no upper page limit. 

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.
