Publication Overview

Publication Overview

Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society is devoted to the publication of research in all areas of pure and applied mathematics. The Memoirs is designed particularly to publish long papers or groups of cognate papers in book form, and is under the supervision of the Editorial Committee of the AMS journal Transactions of the AMS. To be accepted by the editorial board, manuscripts must be correct, new, and significant. Further, they must be well written and of interest to a substantial number of mathematicians. Papers appearing in the Memoirs are generally at least 80 and not more than 200 published pages in length. Papers less than 80 or more than 200 published pages require the approval of the Managing Editor of the Transactions/Memoirs Editorial Board.

The Memoirs consists of six published volumes per year, each typically containing four or more numbers. Each number contains either a single monograph or a group of related papers

Backlog information

As of October 31, 2018, the Memoirs backlog was approximately 22 volumes. This estimate is the result of dividing the number of manuscripts in the Providence office that have not yet gone to the printer on the above date by the average number of monographs per volume over the previous twelve months, reduced by the number of volumes published in four months (the time necessary for processing a typical volume). In an effort to make manuscripts available as quickly as possible, manuscripts are electronically published on the AMS website individually before appearing in print.


Any inquiries concerning a Memoir that has been accepted for publication should be sent by email or by postal mail to the Electronic PrePress Department, American Mathematical Society, 201 Charles Street, Providence, RI 02904-2213 USA.
