Journal Author Resources

Our high quality, peer-reviewed journals have been published since 1891 and cover a broad range of mathematical disciplines. By publishing with the AMS, your book will be part of one of the most respectable collections of mathematical literature in the world. Here, we offer a step-by-step guide to help you publish with the AMS, starting with selecting the right journal for your paper.

The AMS uses Centralized Manuscript Processing for initial submission to our journals.

                                                                                     logo To verify originality, your article may be checked by the originality detection service.

All articles accepted for publication in AMS Journals are peer reviewed by external reviewers. Editors may reject papers without external review that are not suitable for publication in the journal due to reasons such as subject matter or clear weaknesses in scientific content or presentation style.

Historically, the AMS has had a single-anonymous peer-review process in which the reviewers know who the authors of the manuscript are, but the authors do not have access to the information on who the peer reviewers are. In 2021, the AMS Council voted to transition to a double-anonymous peer review process in which both authors and referees of a given article remain anonymous to each other, and this transition is being rolled out across the research journal portfolio.
