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


Please double-check your eligibility with your institutional open access team on acceptance of your paper. 

You may also contact the LMS Editorial Office for assistance.

Due to a higher volume of articles than predicted being published via the Wiley/Jisc Open Access publishing deal, Jisc will be limiting access to the payment of APCs to authors funded by UKRI. This change will take effect from 1 July 2021 and will last until the end of 2021 Please see Open Access for Authors in the UK | Wiley

Information for all authors on the availability of open access funds can be found here: Affiliation Policies and Payments | Wiley

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 $3600. 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

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.
