Online Access

The most recent five years of IJM are available online to subscribers. Articles older than five years are open access.

Submitting a Paper to IJM

We welcome the submission of high-quality research papers in all areas of mainstream mathematics. To be considered for publication, a paper must be well written and its results correct, new, and significant. In addition, the paper should be of interest to a substantial number of mathematicians. Information for authors, including editorial policy and submission of manuscripts, is available here.

Special Volume in Honor of Wolfgang Haken

Copies of the special issue featuring a collection of articles in honor of Wolfgang Haken are available for purchase. The issue also includes a reprint of Haken’s “On Homotopy 3 Spheres,” originally published in 1960 in the Illinois Journal of Mathematics. Haken’s most famous mathematical achievement is his solution (with Ken Appel, in 1976­–77) of the Four Color Problem in graph theory.

The Haken volume may be purchased for $35 from the Illinois Journal of Mathematics. Please email to order. Payment must be by check drawn on a U.S. bank or by credit card (please call +1 217-333-3410). There is a $35 surcharge for postage outside of North America.


About the Illinois Journal of Mathematics  

The Illinois Journal of Mathematics was founded in 1957 by Reinhold Baer, Joe Doob, Abraham Taub, George Whitehead, and Oscar Zariski.  The inaugural volume featured papers of many of the world’s leading figures in the key areas of mathematics at the time: William Feller, Paul Levy, and Paul Malliavin in probability theory; Richard Bellman, R.P. Boas, Jack Hale, and Edwin Hewitt in analysis; Marvin Marcus, Olga Taussky, and Oscar Zariski in algebra; and Paul Erdös, L.J. Mordell, and John Tate in number theory.  Distinguished researchers such as J. Bourgain, A. Calderon, S.S. Chern, H. Kesten, and K. Uhlenbeck have served as editors of IJM.  With managing editorship in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the journal remains a highly regarded peer-reviewed platform for dissemination of significant new results in all active areas of mathematics research.
