About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The BULLETIN of the Australian Mathematical Society aims at quick publication of original research in all branches of mathematics. To ensure speedy publication, only articles which are sufficiently well presented as not to require revision and which are judged by the Editor (often in consultation with an Associate Editor) to be competitive are refereed. This policy is in the interests of authors, as a quick decision is better than a slow rejection. The BULLETIN receives more than five times the amount of material that can be published, therefore there are many commendable papers which cannot be accepted. Editorial decisions on acceptance or otherwise are taken quickly, often within a month of receipt of the paper.

Peer Review Process

Papers are accepted only after peer review. Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work is not concurrently submitted elsewhere. Authors should read carefully all the details listed below. For a paper to be acceptable for publication, not only should it contain new and interesting results but also 

  • the exposition should be clear and attractive,
  • the paper should be relatively short (say, no more than 12 pages), and
  • the manuscript should be in publishable form, without revision.

Authors are encouraged to prepare their manuscripts using the ‘baustms’ document class for LaTeX. Please see the Author Guidelines included in the Submissions tab on this website.
