- Advancing the application of mathematics to science and industry
- Providing media for the exchange of information and ideas among mathematicians, computational scientists, and engineers

Choosing to publish with SIAM means offering readers access to your book for a reasonable price. SIAM is dedicated to pricing books affordably for individuals in the mathematical, computational science, statistical, scientific, and engineering communities.
Professors who adopt a SIAM book as a primary text will receive a discount code so their students receive a discount when ordering directly from SIAM.
In addition to actively pursuing instances of piracy based on reports from authors, customers, and the community, SIAM aggressively pursues unauthorized posting of our authors' materials online. Using an independent contractor, we regularly monitor and take down sites that illegally post our book content.
SIAM Publishes Textbooks
SIAM textbooks are used to educate the next generation of mathematicians and computational scientists. Many of SIAM's bestsellers are our undergraduate and graduate textbooks. SIAM books are also used as supplementary classroom texts. View all our textbooks here.
Personal Attention and Flexibility
SIAM's Book Acquisitions staff views each author relationship as a partnership, from start to publication and beyond. We pride ourselves on giving each book the individual attention it deserves. As a SIAM author, you will get to know our staff as they guide your book from submission to final product, answering all your questions along the way.
High Level of Quality Control
All SIAM books are edited by experienced copy editors who are familiar with mathematical notation. Authors review the copyedited manuscript. The copyediting and proofreading stages of production ensure the published book will be free of inconsistencies in format, grammar, style, and punctuation. Our books are printed and bound to the highest quality control standards and stand up to long lives of well-thumbed use.
Our staff is well versed in LaTeX and other systems and works with authors to accommodate individual needs such as special formatting or graphics. We understand that each book is unique, and we pay careful attention to each author's specific preferences.
Copyright Protection Policy
As a society, SIAM recognizes and upholds international copyright laws. We do not condone unauthorized electronic use of our books. If we find that our rights are being violated, we will contact the violator and request that they cease providing access to our material. If our request is not acted upon, we reserve the right to pursue other means that will allow us to protect the rights of our authors and our organization.
Author Royalties, Complimentary Copies, and Discounts
SIAM offers competitive author royalties, free copies for authors, and an author discount on their books.
If they choose, authors have the option of donating all or part of their royalties to the SIAM Student Travel Fund, which covers travel expenses to SIAM conferences for several students each year.
Our entire inventory of books is housed on-site, so orders from customers in North America are sent from our offices within three business days of receipt. SIAM member and nonmember customers who live outside of North America can order books locally through the Eurospan Group to take advantage of free shipping, payment in local currency, and prompt delivery of their books. To review titles and order SIAM books visit the SIAM bookstore.
SIAM's growing e-book program has increased the exposure and readership of our books around the world. Our institutional e-book collection is available to university and industry libraries, where they can benefit students and researchers. Individuals can purchase our books on Google Play for use on most devices.
As an international society with 14,000+ members and contacts among book buyers, conference attendees, and sister societies around the world, we have opportunities to market our books to hundreds of thousands of individuals worldwide. We also maximize our networks and utilize outside publications and mailing lists and have cooperative arrangements for marketing our products to other societies globally. We actively engage with our communities through social media, journal advertisements, and direct mail campaigns. Learn more about the marketing of your book.
