Notices of the American Mathematical Society

Information for Notices Authors

Notices both solicits articles and welcomes unsolicited articles for consideration. Authors are not paid, nor are authors asked to pay an Article Processing Charge (APC). Notices publishes articles that have broad appeal for a diverse audience with many different types of readers: graduate students, academic mathematicians, industrial mathematicians, researchers in mathematics-based fields, and amateur enthusiasts. The print edition of Notices is sent to approximately 30,000 members of the AMS, most of whom are professional mathematicians. In addition, Notices is accessible for free online.

Topics. Notices seeks exceptional articles that report on major new developments in mathematics or that describe great mathematicians or episodes from mathematics history that have connections to current research in the field. We also welcome articles discussing aspects of the mathematics profession, such as grant programs, the job market, professional opportunities for mathematicians, publishing, electronic communications, and mathematics education, at all levels. In addition, we publish reviews of books.

Our goal is to provide valuable and enjoyable articles about new developments in mathematics and in the mathematics profession, as well as other related matters of interest. Notices is not a research journal but rather a magazine of exposition and news. Please note that all articles are refereed for technical correctness as well as exposition, and publication is contingent on making the changes required by the referees and editors.

Articles may be submitted to Editor in Chief Erica Flapan in either a Word/PDF or LaTeX/PDF pair. A template is available for articles in LaTeX. Please visit the Contact Notices page for additional contact information.
