Publishing with the American Mathematical Society

There are many reasons to publish with the AMS, including our longstanding reputation, our expertise, and our commitment to serving the mathematics community. The AMS is one of the world’s leading publishers of mathematical literature. And because the AMS Book Program helps to support the Society's broader mission to further the interests of mathematics research and scholarship, publishing with the AMS makes a valuable contribution to the mathematical community.

We are experts in mathematical publishing, with editorial boards consisting of experienced mathematicians. If you have a book project or would just like to learn more about publishing with the AMS, visit our Author Resource Center or contact one of the AMS Editors.

About the AMS Book Program

The AMS Book Program began with our Colloquium series, which has its roots in the famous 1894 lectures of Felix Klein. Mathematical Surveys followed, as well as conference proceedings, volumes from summer workshops, and regular translations, especially from Russian. In the early 1990s, the AMS began adding additional monograph and copublication series (including Graduate Studies in Mathematics, Student Mathematical Library, Clay Mathematics, and Courant Lecture Notes).

The majority of AMS books appear in one of our Monograph, Collections and Proceedings, or Copublication series. The AMS also publishes and distributes many titles that do not fit into a specific series. These books may be geared towards a certain readership or may have broad appeal to anyone interested in mathematics. Some of the books are dedicated to the teaching of mathematics and career development, while others are geared towards a specific discipline or education level.

Since the 1890s, the AMS Book Program has served the mathematical community by publishing books that further mathematical research, awareness, education, and the profession while generating resources that support other Society programs and activities. As a professional society of mathematicians and one of the world’s leading publishers of mathematical literature, we publish books that meet the highest standards for their content and production.
