About the Journal

The Journal of Topology publishes papers of high quality and significance in topology, geometry and adjacent areas of mathematics. Interesting, important and often unexpected links connect topology and geometry with many other parts of mathematics, and the editors welcome submissions on exciting new advances concerning such links, as well as those in the core subject areas of the journal.

The Journal of Topology was founded in 2008. It is published quarterly with articles published individually on line prior to appearing in a printed issue. Online access is free to papers published ahead of print on Advance Access, and to issues published within the past 6 months. View the LMS open access policy.
