The Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society is the flagship journal of the LMS.  It publishes articles of the highest quality and significance across a broad range of mathematics. There are no page length restrictions for submitted papers. 

The Proceedings has its own Editorial Board separate from that of the Journal, Bulletin and Transactions of the LMS. 
The first papers handled by this new Editorial Board against the new criteria for acceptance will appear in the 2021 volume of the Proceedings  but will be available on Early View as and when they are accepted. 
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.

Papers which would previously have been submitted to the Proceedings and are 18 pages or more will now be welcomed by the Journal.

Submit to the Proceedings

You can submit a paper to this journal electronically here.

If you would like to use the LMS class file, you can access it here. Upon acceptance, authors will be asked to either assign an exclusive licence to publish to the Society or to publish under the Gold Open Access route.

The London Mathematical Society has 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. The Society is also in agreement with the principles of the EMS Code of Practice.

LMS Members can receive free online access to the BulletinJournaland Proceedings of the LMS if they have signed up for free online access via their LMS membership record. Free online access to these three journals can be activated via their LMS Membership Profile here: and selecting their preferred journals under the “My LMS Membership” tab. The LMS will then notify Wiley who will then issue members with a username and password to login to the Wiley Online Library.

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


Open Access

The Proceedings is a hybrid journal with standard subscription access as the default, and a paid Gold Open Access option.

Funder requirements

Your funder or institution may require you to publish gold or green open access. Wiley has an Author Compliance Tool to check the policies of your funder or institution.

Gold Open Access

The final, typeset version of the article is made immediately freely available online for all to read, download, and share.

Licence alternatives:

  • CC-BY (Creative Commons Attribution License)
  • CC-BY-NC (Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial License)
  • CC-BY-NC-ND (Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial No Derivative Works License)

The APC associated with this option is $3000. Please note, some funders or institutions have an arrangement with Wiley to cover the fees articles rather then the author paying directly.  Details of such agreements can be found on their Funder Agreements page.

Green open access/self-archiving

The author, institution or publisher places a version of the article online in a repository or website after publishing in a subscription-based journal – making it freely available to everyone.

Authors may (continue to) post electronic versions of their article up to the version initially accepted for publication‡ on the author’s personal website, in a not-for-profit subject-based preprint server or repository, or in a Scholarly Collaboration Network (SCN) that has signed up to the STM article sharing principles, or in the author’s company/ institutional repository or archive. This right extends to both intranets and the Internet. The accepted version must be accompanied by a legend as follows: “This is the accepted version of the following article: FULL CITE, which has been published in final form at [Link to final article].”

‡ These self-archiving rights do not extend to the final, published version except where the article is published with the paid Open Access option. 


Content Sharing
As of July 2017, subscribers of the Bulletin, Journal and Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, and the Journal of Topology, are able to share content with each other in a new way.
Our publishing partner Wiley has introduced a ‘peer-to-peer’ sharing initiative on their Online Library, where articles published in these journals are accessed digitally. Subscribers (with existing full-text access to the journals) can generate a URL that can be shared with other readers in the form of an ePDF provided by academic paper manager ReadCube,
When shared with a fellow subscriber, the URL provides an unrestricted view of the electronic PDF and the usual ability to download or print it; a non-subscriber is granted restricted access to a read-only PDF with no print or download privileges.
This new way to share articles should benefit researchers, institutions and society as a whole, facilitating collaboration and hopefully achieving a wider readership and impact of research.
On Acceptance

Upon acceptance, you will be asked to agree to assign an Exclusive Licence to Publish to the Society or alternatively to opt to make the paper Open Access.

To help you promote your own paper and make it maximally discoverable, cited and shared, Wiley has developed a Promotional Toolkit at with ideas specific to promoting individual papers.
