Notices of the American Mathematical Society

Information for Notices Authors

The 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). The 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 mathematically based fields, and amateur enthusiasts. The print edition of the Notices is sent to the approximately 30,000 members of the AMS, most of whom are professional mathematicians. In addition, Notices is accessible for free over the Internet.

Topics. The Notices seeks exceptional articles that report on major new developments in mathematics or that describe great mathematicians or episodes from mathematics history that have connection 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.

Reaching the audience. 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. A Notices article should have graphics (high resolution, color or with colorized backgrounds), including head shots of the author(s), with written permissions for all artwork. (Ideal resolution is 300 DPI for color; permissions form here.) Please note acceptance of an article does not guarantee publication.


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