Aims and Scope
The 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.
Papers can be submitted electronically. See here for further details.
When preparing the paper for submission, authors may wish to use
lms.cls, which can be found at the LMS general instructions for authors page. Upon acceptance, the author(s) will be asked to agree to grant the Society an Exclusive Licence to Publish or alternatively to opt to make the paper open access.
The Journal of Topology is a hybrid journal with standard subscription access as the default, and an Open Access option. For a summary of publishing rights, open access and archiving policies for the Journal of Topology, please see this fact sheet.

Statement on pricing. The Society takes care to maintain reasonable and ethical pricing, including free online access for LMS members and for institutions in developing countries. Base subscription prices of individual journals are decided each year based on a balance of criteria reflecting the value to readers and authors. In order to sustain in real terms the funding of the Society’s charitable activities, in cases where other indicators are equal the LMS will normally only increase the base journal subscription prices in line with inflation. More information is available on the Society’s web page www.lms.ac.uk/statement-pricing.
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.
