The Proceedings, Journal and Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, which have long been among the world's leading mathematical research journals, are now joined by a fourth sibling: the Transactions of the London Mathematical Society, launched in March 2013. Read the Launch Statement.

The Transactions  is a fully open access online journal that covers the same subjects as the Bulletin, Journal and Proceedings. All four journals share the same Editorial Advisory Board and the same standard of peer review. The Bulletin, Journal and Proceedings are hybrid journals, meaning that they have standard subscription access as default, and a permanent open access option.

A paper should be submitted directly to one of the journals. The Bulletin, Journal and Proceedings have submission criteria based on the published length of the paper:

The Bulletin also publishes surveys (of any length), research-expository papers, and obituaries. However, from 2016 the Bulletin no longer publishes book reviews.

The Proceedings appears monthly, whereas the Journal and Bulletin appear bimonthly. The Transactions is published online as one annual volume. The Proceedings has been published since the Society's foundation in 1865 and is now in its Third Series. The Journal was founded in 1926 and is in its Second Series. The Bulletin, still in its First Series, was founded in 1969. The subject coverage of the LMS journals ranges across a broad spectrum of mathematics, covering the whole of pure mathematics together with some more applied areas of analysis, mathematical physics, theoretical computer science, probability and statistics. The current Editorial Board reflects predominantly pure interests, but the Society wishes to encourage a spread to more applicable areas.

Referees can obtain report forms from this web server.

The Proceedings, Journal and Bulletin are available to members of the London Mathematical Society at special rates, on the understanding that they are for the personal use of members, not for libraries. (Council reserves the right to refuse such discounts to any member whose institution does not already subscribe.)

Journal of Topology

Since January 2008, the new Journal of Topology publishes papers of high quality and significance in topology, geometry and adjacent areas of mathematics. Interesting, important and often unexpected links connect topology and geometry with many other parts of mathematics, and the Editors welcome submissions on exciting new advances concerning such links, as well as those in the core subject areas of the journal.

The journal is published quarterly. Guidelines for submitting papers and further information can be found here.

LMS Journal of Computation and Mathematics

The LMS Journal of Computation and Mathematics is a free online journal that publishes internationally-leading papers addressing topics in computational pure and applied mathematics, including papers at the interface of Mathematics and Computer Science. The journal has a separate Editorial Board, and is refereed to the same high standard as all LMS journals.

The journal was closed to new submissions in October 2015. Since 2010 the journal is web-hosted by Cambridge University Press, including the archive dating back to 1998.  The LMS is committed to maintaining the archive of published papers into the indefinite future.

Mathematika

Since 2010 the Society is publishing the journal Mathematika on behalf of its owner University College London. The first issue of volume 56 appeared in January 2010.

Mathematika publishes both pure and applied mathematical articles and has done so continuously since its founding by Harold Davenport in the 1950s. Before 2010, it had not been published online, but now all articles, including the full archive dating back to 1954, are available electronically via Cambridge Journals Online.

Submissions. The Editors welcome submissions to Mathematika via the submissions web page (www.lms.ac.uk/content/mtk-submit).

Nonlinearity

 

In collaboration with the Institute of Physics, the LMS publishes Nonlinearity (established 1989), which is available in an online version for subscribers.

Aimed primarily at mathematicians and physicists interested in research on nonlinear phenomena, the journal's coverage ranges from proofs of important theorems to papers presenting ideas, conjectures and numerical or physical experiments of significant physical and mathematical interest.

Nonlinearity is available to members of the London Mathematical Society at special rates, on the understanding that it is for the personal use of members, not for libraries. (Council reserves the right to refuse such discounts to any member whose institution does not already subscribe.)

Compositio Mathematica

The Society publishes Compositio Mathematica on behalf of the Foundation that owns the journal. Submissions and peer review are managed from the Editorial offices in the Netherlands and the production process is managed through the LMS offices in London, UK. Typesetting is provided by Sunrise Setting of Brixham, UK, and distribution and marketing is the responsibility of Cambridge University Press. The subscription prices were reduced by one third when the LMS took over publication from Kluwer in 2004. Since then, the increase in prices has been very modest and negative in several cases. We have kept to the original intention that the price reduction would not be a one-off introductory offer, and this is a permanent change to a lower pricing policy. Further information on the journal can be found here.

The COMPOSITIO PRIZE is awarded every three years in recognition of an outstanding piece of mathematical research published in the journal. The recipient of the 2015 prize was B. Bhatt. Click here for more information.

Translations

The London Mathematical Society co-publishes four translated journals: Russian Mathematical Surveys,  Izvestiya: Mathematics  and  Sbornik: Mathematics  (jointly with the Russian Academy of Sciences and Turpion Ltd), as well as Transactions of the Moscow Mathematical Society  (jointly with the American Mathematical Society).

Russian Mathematical Surveys

 

is the English translation of the Russian bimonthly journal Uspekhi Matematicheskikh Nauk, founded in 1936. The survey articles on current trends in mathematics are generally written by leading experts in the field at the request of the Editorial Board. The Russian original is rigorously refereed within the Russian Academy of Sciences and the translations are carefully scrutinised and edited by the London Mathematical Society.

Russian Mathematical Surveys is a high-prestige journal covering a wide area of mathematics. It is designed for postgraduate students, research fellows, postdoctoral workers, lecturers and researchers across many branches of mathematics, mechanics, and mathematical physics.

Until the end of 1997, Surveys was published jointly by the London Mathematical Society and the British Library. Since 1998, Surveys has been published jointly by the London Mathematical Society, Turpion Ltd, and the Russian Academy of Sciences. The English language version is a cover-to-cover translation of all the material, containing survey articles, the Communications of the Moscow Mathematical Society, and biographical material.
