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.

The Journal of Topology was founded in 2008. It is published quarterly with articles published individually on line prior to appearing in a printed issue. The journal is owned by the London Mathematical Society. From 2017 it is typeset, printed and distributed on our behalf by John Wiley & Sons Ltd. For all Editorial enquires please contact

Statement on Pricing Policy

The Society recognizes the importance of the dissemination of mathematical knowledge and the issues of rising costs, growth in research output and falling library budgets. The Society will retain the objective of increasing its support for mathematical activities and consequent benefits to the mathematical community in the UK and internationally. Within these parameters, the Council of the Society will apply a fair and reasonable pricing policy with respect to its publications.

Ethical Policy

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.
