Editorial Boards Committee

General Description

Principal Activities

The committee shall recommend appointees to certain editorial committees to the AMS President and the Council. To that end, it shall solicit suggestions for those editorial committees by consulting with managing editors, current editorial committees, and other interested parties. The committee should take into account both the interests of the publications and the overall interests of the Society. The AMS strives for diversity in gender, race, geography, area of mathematics, and type of institution, for both its membership and its leadership. The Editorial Boards Committee is expected to keep diversity of all kinds in mind when selecting candidates. The Editorial Boards Committee shall monitor the function of the editors, alerting appropriate bodies (for example, the Committee on Publications, Council, officers, or staff) about existing or potential problems and concerns.

The committee shall recommend members for the following editorial committees and submit its recommendations for approval:

Journal Editorial Committees

All recommendations for these editorial committees go to the President for approval except for the following, which go to the Council:

Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
(as adopted by the April 2019 Council)

The American Mathematical Society is committed to promoting and facilitating equity, diversity and inclusion throughout the mathematical sciences. For its own long-term prosperity as well as that of the public at large, our discipline must connect with and appropriately incorporate all sectors of society. We reaffirm the pledge in the AMS Mission Statement to "advance the status of the profession of mathematics, encouraging and facilitating full participation of all individuals," and urge all members to conduct their professional activities with this goal in mind.
