EditFlow earns frequent kudos and is now in use at more than 65 journals. As an organization built by and for mathematicians, we want EditFlow to spread even further, especially now that Elsevier has purchased Editorial Manager (the EditFlow-like software used by Springer, Taylor & Francis, etc.). If you know of any journals with a possible interest in switching to EditFlow, please send them our way.
On the publications side, we're excited to have three new journals in addition to TJM. With library budgets under increasing pressure, it was a big decision for us to adopt and start new journals, but the way we see it, every page published by MSP is a page not published by one of the big commercial publishers. All four of our new journals are available free online in 2018 and by subscription starting in 2019:
If you'd like to contribute to MSP's mission to defend, expand and strengthen independent scientific publishing, one of the best things you can do is to make sure your institution's library subscribes to one or more of our journals.

Rio hosts the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics
on July 31 2Progress in the area and gender issues will be discussed at (WM)at Riocentro
Protagonists of important advances in mathematics from around the world will gather in Rio de Janeiro on July 31st at the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics (WM)2.
An initiative by the Committee for Women in Mathematics of the International Mathematical Union (IMU), the (WM)2 aims to promote the exchange of experiences among scientists from five continents, united by academic interest and the specific challenges faced by women in mathematics. In addition to academic studies, data will be presented on the impact of gender disparity in the field.
The meeting is a satellite event of the most important mathematics congress, the ICM 2018, which will also take place at Riocentro’s convention center from the 1st to the 9th of August.
At the opening ceremony, the first part of the documentary "Journeys of Women in Mathematics" – produced by the Simons Foundation in partnership with the Committee for Women in Mathematics – will be exhibited for the first time. It tells the stories of women mathematicians around the world, focusing on their research and the day-to-day barriers they face in their careers. Carolina Araujo, from IMPA, is one of the interviewees.
In addition to poster presentations, five scientific lectures will be given by world renowned researchers in diverse areas of mathematics. Challenges, initiatives and perspectives on women's underrepresentation in mathematics will be discussed in focus groups throughout the day.
The Organizing Committee of (WM)2 has also prepared a tribute to Maryam Mirzakhani (1977-2017). A Stanford University Professor in the United States, she was the only woman to win the Fields Medal, the highest honor in the mathematics, established in 1937 to reward outstanding and promising mathematicians under the age of 40. In addition to unpublished photos, the memorial will bring together her life’s work, a specialist in hyperbolic geometry and topology, among other fields of study.
The world's most important congress of mathematicians begins on Wednesday (August 1st) in Rio
For the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, ICM 2018 will open with the announcement of the Fields Medal winners
Brazil has secured its place in the list of host countries of the world’s most important and traditional gathering of mathematics, the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) 2018. From the 1st to the 9th of August, Brazil will welcome – for the first time – researchers from five continents to share outstanding work done in the field and discuss priority topics for the progress and increased visibility of such a fundamental area of knowledge.
In addition to scientific exchange, the most notable and promising mathematicians on the planet are acknowledged at ICM. The highest honor in mathematics, the Fields Medal, is awarded at the event, as well as other outstanding prizes such as Nevanlinna, Gauss, Chern and Leelavati.
The ICM first took place in 1897 in Zurich, Switzerland, and has never before been hosted in the Southern Hemisphere. It is held every four years by the host country under the auspices of the International Mathematical Union. It has only been suspended during periods of global conflicts. In Brazil, the event is part of the Brazilian Biennium of Mathematics 2017-2018, which includes a series of national and international initiatives geared towards, among other objectives, encouraging the study of the discipline, popularizing it and promoting activities that bring audiences in closer contact with mathematics.
For nine days, there will be a wide and varied scientific program, with approximately 1,200 activities including lectures, panel discussions, and short poster presentations and communications. Almost 40 scientific satellite events will be held in the country alongside the ICM, among them the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics, (WM)2, on July 31st, which will discuss research and gender issues in mathematics.
“Hosting ICM 2018 is a great honor for the Brazilian mathematics community. We believe that it also pays tribute to the progress attained in so little time by a developing country where mathematics research is only around six decades old,” said the chairman of the ICM 2018’s Organizing Committee and managing director of IMPA (Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics), Marcelo Viana, referring to Brazil’s entrance in Group 5 of the IMU, formed by 11 countries considered the elite of mathematical research.
Popularization of math and students award:
Besides the academic focus, ICM 2018 has not overlooked activities that include a wider public. At the “IMPA-Serrapilheira” Popularization of Mathematics Cycle, five lectures will be held with prominent mathematicians and vocal advocates of the discipline, among them French Cédric Villani, winner of the 2010 Fields Medal; the award-winning Belgian Ingrid Daubechies of Duke University (USA), known for her groundbreaking work in applied mathematics in the field of modern communications; and the Portuguese Rogério Martins, from the University of Lisbon (Portugal), creator and presenter of the TV program "Isto é Matemática".
The award ceremony of the 576 gold medalists of the world's largest scientific competition, OBMEP (Brazilian Mathematics Olympiad of Public Schools) will also take place during the event. Held annually since 2005 by IMPA, with support from the Brazilian Society of Mathematics (SBM), the event brings together 18,2 million students from public and private institutions.

Tunisian Journal of Mathematics (TJM):
La Société Mathématique de Tunisie a le plaisir d'annoncer le lancement d'un nouveau journal international, le Journal Tunisien de Mathématiques (Tunisian Journal of Mathematics TJM), doté d’un comité éditorial de très haut niveau.
Cette nouvelle publication a été organisée par la Société Mathématique de Tunisie et est publiée sous forme électronique et imprimée par MSP à Berkeley. Elle publie des articles de recherche dans tous les domaines des mathématiques. Ceux-ci sont sélectionnés par un comité éditorial international éminent, sur des critères de qualité et d’intérêt, et selon les normes internationales les plus élevées.
Le but de TJM est l’avancement des mathématiques. Les éditeurs évaluent les articles soumis exclusivement sur la base du mérite scientifique. Tous les articles soumis à cette revue sont examinés par des pairs. Le TJM utilise un processus d’évaluation unique par les pairs (blind peer-review), ce qui signifie que les rapporteurs savent qui sont les auteurs du manuscrit, mais les auteurs ne savent pas qui sont les pairs examinateurs.
Le continent africain s’intéresse de plus en plus au développement scientifique, en particulier en mathématiques. La Société Mathématique de Tunisie a été fondée en 1992 et est membre institutionnel permanent de l’Union Mathématique Internationale. Elle joue un rôle majeur dans la stimulation et le maintien d’une recherche mathématique de haut niveau en Tunisie et dans sa région environnante. Avec le lancement de cette revue, la Société Mathématique de Tunisie contribue au développement en Afrique d’une recherche scientifique répondant à des normes internationales élevées.
Le comité de rédaction de TJM invite les mathématiciens du monde entier à participer à ce projet stimulant en lui soumettant des articles de recherche de haut niveau.
La SMT exprime ses souhaits de succès au Journal Tunisien de Mathématiques.
