IMU issues Best Current Practices for Journals

September 3, 2010

Following on its 2004 document offering recommendations to mathematics journals for best practices as they relate to the changing environment of peer-reviewed journals and the communication of research in the digital age, the International Mathematical Union (IMU) Committee on Electronic Information and Communication (CEIC) recently released an updated document endorsed by the IMU General Assembly, held August 16-17, 2010, in Bangalore, India. Based on experiences drawn from existing journals, the document outlines current best practices for journal management within the framework of currently available technology. The focus is on ensuring fundamental principles such as transparency and integrity, even as practices are continually revised and updated to keep up with emerging technological developments.
