The **Pacific Journal of Mathematics** (ISSN 0030-8730) is a mathematics research journal supported by a number of American, Asian and Australian universities and research institutes, and currently published on their behalf by Mathematical Sciences Publishers, a non-profit academic publishing organisation.

**Mathematical Sciences Publishers** is a nonprofit publishing company run by and for mathematicians. It publishes several journals and the book series *Geometry & Topology Monographs*. It is run from a central office in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley.

It was founded in 1951 by František Wolf and Edwin F. Beckenbach and has been published continuously since, with five two-issue volumes per year. Full-text PDF versions of all journal articles are available on-line via the journal's website with a subscription.

**František Wolf** (1904–1989) was a Czech mathematician known for his contributions to trigonometry and mathematical analysis, specifically the study of the perturbation of linear operators.

**Edwin Ford Beckenbach** was an American mathematician.

**Recreational mathematics** is mathematics carried out for recreation (entertainment) rather than as a strictly research and application-based professional activity. Although it is not necessarily limited to being an endeavor for amateurs, many topics in this field require no knowledge of advanced mathematics. Recreational mathematics involves mathematical puzzles and games, often appealing to children and untrained adults, inspiring their further study of the subject.

**Operations research**, or **operational research (OR)** in British usage, is a discipline that deals with the application of advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions. Further, the term **operational analysis** is used in the British military as an intrinsic part of capability development, management and assurance. In particular, operational analysis forms part of the Combined Operational Effectiveness and Investment Appraisals, which support British defense capability acquisition decision-making.

The **Mathematical Association of America** (**MAA**) is a professional society that focuses on mathematics accessible at the undergraduate level. Members include university, college, and high school teachers; graduate and undergraduate students; pure and applied mathematicians; computer scientists; statisticians; and many others in academia, government, business, and industry.

The **American Mathematical Society** (**AMS**) is an association of professional mathematicians dedicated to the interests of mathematical research and scholarship, and serves the national and international community through its publications, meetings, advocacy and other programs.

**The London Mathematical Society** (**LMS**) is one of the United Kingdom's learned societies for mathematics.

* Proceedings of the Royal Society* is the parent title of two scientific journals published by the Royal Society. Originally a single journal, it was split into two separate journals in 1905:

The **Institute for Scientific Information** (**ISI**) was an academic publishing service, founded by Eugene Garfield in Philadelphia in 1960. ISI offered bibliographic database services. Its specialty was citation indexing and analysis, a field pioneered by Garfield.

* The American Mathematical Monthly* is a mathematical journal founded by Benjamin Finkel in 1894. It is published ten times each year by Taylor & Francis for the Mathematical Association of America.

* Mathematical Reviews* is a journal published by the American Mathematical Society (AMS) that contains brief synopses, and in some cases evaluations, of many articles in mathematics, statistics, and theoretical computer science. The AMS also publishes an associated online bibliographic database called MathSciNet which contains an electronic version of

**zbMATH**, formerly **Zentralblatt MATH**, is a major international reviewing service providing reviews and abstracts for articles in pure and applied mathematics, produced by the Berlin office of FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure GmbH. Editors are the European Mathematical Society (EMS), FIZ Karlsruhe, and the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences. zbMATH is distributed by Springer Science+Business Media. It uses the Mathematics Subject Classification codes for organising the reviews by topic.

The **Cambridge Philosophical Society** (**CPS**) is a scientific society at the University of Cambridge. It was founded in 1819. The name derives from the medieval use of the word philosophy to denote any research undertaken outside the fields of theology and medicine. The society was granted a royal charter by William IV in 1832.

The * Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society* is a quarterly mathematical journal published by the American Mathematical Society.

* Notices of the American Mathematical Society* is the membership journal of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), published monthly except for the combined June/July issue. The first volume appeared in 1953. Each issue of the magazine since January 1995 is available in its entirety on the journal web site. Articles are peer-reviewed by an editorial board of mathematical experts. Since 2019, the editor-in-chief is Erica Flapan. The cover regularly features mathematical visualizations.

* Acta Mathematica* is a peer-reviewed open-access scientific journal covering research in all fields of mathematics.

* Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences* is a fortnightly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Royal Society. It publishes original research and review content in a wide range of physical scientific disciplines. Articles can be accessed online a few months prior to the printed journal. All articles become freely accessible two years after their publication date. The current editor-in-chief is John Dainton.

* Experimental Mathematics* is a quarterly scientific journal of mathematics published by A K Peters, Ltd. until 2010, now by Taylor & Francis. The journal publishes papers in experimental mathematics, broadly construed. The journal's mission statement describes its scope as follows: "Experimental Mathematics publishes original papers featuring formal results inspired by experimentation, conjectures suggested by experiments, and data supporting significant hypotheses." As of 2013 the editor-in-chief is Sergei Tabachnikov.

* Discrete Mathematics* is a biweekly peer-reviewed scientific journal in the broad area of discrete mathematics, combinatorics, graph theory, and their applications. It was established in 1971 and is published by North-Holland Publishing Company. It publishes both short notes, full length contributions, as well as survey articles. In addition, the journal publishes a number of special issues each year dedicated to a particular topic. Although originally it published articles in French and German, it now allows only English language articles. The editor-in-chief is Douglas West.

**IOP Publishing** is the publishing company of the Institute of Physics. It provides publications through which scientific research is distributed worldwide, including journals, community websites, magazines, conference proceedings and books. The Institute of Physics is a scientific charity devoted to increasing the practice, understanding and application of physics. Any financial surplus earned by IOP Publishing goes to support physics through the activities of the Institute.

* Advances in Mathematics* is a mathematics journal publishing research on pure mathematics. It was founded in 1961 by Gian-Carlo Rota. The journal currently publishes 18 issues each year, in three volumes.
