The London Mathematical Society and Wiley confirm new publishing partnership
John Wiley and Sons Inc. announced today that it has been selected by the London Mathematical Society (LMS) as its publishing partner for five of its distinguished scholarly journals in mathematics. With over 2600 members drawn from all parts of the UK and internationally, the LMS is the major UK learned society for mathematics.
Beginning in January 2017, Wiley will assume publishing responsibility for the following five journals: Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, Journal of the London Mathematical Society, Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, Transactions of the London Mathematical Society, and Journal of Topology. All five of the journals will be hosted on Wiley Online Library, including back file content from these journals dating back to 1865.
“We’re delighted to enter this exciting, new partnership with the LMS as publisher of their prestigious journals portfolio,” said David Nicholson, Vice President in Wiley’s Society Services team. “All five of the titles moving to Wiley have a great reputation for quality, and we’re looking forward to working with the society and their community of editors, advisors, authors and readers around the world.”
“I am delighted for our journals to move to Wiley during my presidency,” said Professor Simon Tavaré, President of the London Mathematical Society. “We unanimously chose Wiley because they offer a great combination of global access to libraries and to our authors. In these times of changing business models, we recognise that our journals are in competition with many others to publish the best papers, and we need to encourage good mathematicians to submit their best papers to our journals. Wiley will work with us to bring new authors and our editors together.”
