 New York | London | Heidelberg, 18 June 2014

© SpringerSpringer has just launched a new open access journal in Mathematics. Research in the Mathematical Sciences journal will be part of the SpringerOpen portfolio and can be read without subscription charges or registration barriers on www.resmathsci.com and on Springer’s platform SpringerLink.

Research in the Mathematical Sciences is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal covering the full scope of all the traditional areas of applied and theoretical mathematics and computer science. The journal aims to publish high-quality original articles that make a significant contribution to these fields, and will actively seek to publish seminal papers in the most emerging and interdisciplinary areas of the mathematical sciences. It will also publish shorter research communications (Letters) covering nascent research in some of the hottest areas of mathematical research.

This journal will be an efficient enterprise in which the editors play a central role in soliciting the best research papers, and editorial decisions are reached in a timely fashion.

“Research in the Mathematical Sciences is an exciting new journal from SpringerOpen. This journal provides open access publication of the highest level research in the mathematical sciences. The standards are set by a distinguished editorial board whose expertise spans applied mathematics, theoretical mathematics, and theoretical computer science. I will serve as the journal's first Managing Editor-in-Chief, and I am excited to work with three outstanding editors-in-chief: Bjorn Engquist, Olga Holtz, and Yuri Tschinkel”, said Dr. Ken Ono.

“I am pleased to be working with Ken Ono and our co-editors-in-chief on this new open access journal in the mathematical sciences. Our goals are ambitious, as the scope of the journal is broad covering applied math, pure math, and theoretical computer science”, added Marc Strauss, Editorial Director, Mathematics, Springer North America. “Open access publishing is a relatively new frontier for the mathematics community, but I am confident that our editors will make this journal innovative while publishing the highest caliber scholarly research.”
