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.

Open Access

The Proceedings 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 Proceedings, please see this fact sheet.

All surplus income from the LMS publishing programme is used to support the mathematics community in the form of conference grants, research grants, prizes and the promotion of mathematics.
