Aims and scope

Research in the Mathematical Sciences is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal covering the full scope of Theoretical Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Theoretical Computer Science. The Mission of the Journal will be to publish high-quality original articles that make a significant contribution to the research areas of both theoretical and applied mathematics and theoretical computer science.

This journal will be an efficient enterprise where the editors play a central role in soliciting the best research papers, and where editorial decisions are reached in a timely fashion. It will also publish shorter research communications (Letters) covering nascent research in some of the hottest areas of mathematical research. This journal will publish the highest quality papers in all of the traditional areas of applied and theoretical areas of mathematics and computer science, and it will actively seek to publish seminal papers in the most emerging and interdisciplinary areas in all of the mathematical sciences. Research in the Mathematical Sciences wishes to lead the way by promoting the highest quality research of this type.
