Aims and Scope

The Transactions of the London Mathematical Society is a fully Open Access journal that publishes leading research in a broad range of mathematical subject areas. Articles accepted by the Transactions are of high quality and well written. The journal is listed in the DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) and the ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation Index).

The Transactions welcomes papers on subjects of general interest that represent a significant advance in mathematical knowledge as well as submissions that are deemed to stimulate new interest and research activity.  The journal is peer reviewed to the high standard assured by the London Mathematical Society for all its journals.

The Transactions is funded by Article Publishing Charges (APCs) payable by the authors with money from their funder or institution. Aside from covering the initial costs of publication, any surplus from the APC goes to the LMS charitable programme to support the mathematics community in the form of conference grants, research grants, prizes and the promotion of mathematics.

The current APC is $1250. Authors who receive funding from an agency or institution with a Wiley Open Access Account do not pay directly. The charge is paid by the institution or funder. More details are available here

Automatic Article Publication Charge waivers and discounts will be given to authors from countries on the Waivers and Discounts List.  Such authors should submit a waiver or discount request during the submission of their article to
