Journal overview:

Communications of the American Mathematical Society (CAMS), is designed to provide a home for the very best research and review articles across all areas of mathematics. The journal will be a natural home for both pure and applied mathematics, presenting a window into a holistic view of mathematics and its applications to a wide range of disciplines. The AMS expects the journal to be a diverse and inclusive home for mathematicians around the world in support of emerging research in mathematics.

The AMS is pleased to be able to launch CAMS using a diamond open access model. The key features of Diamond open access for CAMS are as follows:

  • No charges, or article processing charges for author who publish in CAMS.
  • All articles are publicly available to read without charge to individuals, or institutions.
  • All articles will be published with an appropriate Creative Commons License of CC-BY, or CC-BY-NC, at the author’s discretion.

The AMS believes that while open access is important to the future of research across the mathematical community, we do not want to place the burden of publishing in CAMS on the author, institution, or funder. CAMS will provide the very best mathematical research at no cost to the community. We are able to do this with the help of an AMS donor, who shares our belief that providing open access in mathematics is an important step forward if done in a way that is sustainable, and does not negatively impact researchers.

CAMS will be led by a stellar group of mathematicians across all aspects of mathematics. Under the leadership of Ralph Cohen (Stanford University), and Qiang Du (Columbia University) as Co-managing Editors, a team of Editors has been created. This team aspires to bring to the journal the best pure and applied mathematics, providing a new home for seminal contributions across all areas of mathematics. The initial editorial structure of the journals is shown below (a further group of Associate Editors will be added soon):

Co-Managing Editors:

  • Ralph Cohen (Stanford University)
