Workshop on Mathematics Journals: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute  4 views

Garrett Eastman on 20 Jan 11A workshop scheduled in Berkeley, California, Feburary1416, 2011. "The workshop will discuss what is important and unique to the publishing of mathematical research articles and how we can best ensure that publishing practices support peer reviewed research in the long term. Much of the current discussion is taking place between funders and publishers, including learned societies, but not directly with mathematicians. A second goal is to see if we can find a consensus of opinion on what is important about journal publishing to mathematicians, that is, where the balance lies between the desire for profits from publishing and the broader dissemination of research."
