Prestigious mathematics titles to be published by Oxford Journals

18 October 2006

Oxford Journals is pleased to announce a new publishing partnership with the London Mathematical Society (LMS) to publish three titles: Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, Journal of the London Mathematical Society, and Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society.

The journals of the LMS are among the world’s leading mathematical research periodicals, between them covering a broad spectrum of mathematics, including the whole of pure mathematics, as well as more applied areas of analysis, mathematical physics, theoretical computer science, probability, and statistics.

The move to Oxford Journals marks a new chapter for the LMS titles, which from January 2007 will offer subscribers* access to the complete electronic archive of papers, dating back to 1865. The journal archive includes previously hard-to-find papers from leading British and international mathematicians over the last 150 years, including classic papers of Turing, Hardy, and Littlewood.

Dr Susan Hezlet, Publisher for the LMS, commented, "We are looking forward to seeing all the published volumes online for the first time, thanks to the work done by Oxford Journals." She continued,

"The vast majority of the published papers have never been available electronically before, and each journal will have a seamless archive from Volume one through to the present day. This should make life simple for anyone wanting to search or browse through the rich history from De Morgan, Kelvin, and Rayleigh; through Russell, Turing, Hall, Higman, and Hodge; right up to Atiyah and Hitchin."

The journals will be published by Oxford Journals from January 2007.
