Project Euclid News

Two Open Access Probability Journals Join Project Euclid

We are excited to announce that both the Electronic Journal of Probability and Electronic Communications in Probability are now available in Project Euclid. Co-published by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the Bernoulli Society, these titles join other high-quality publications in probability and statistics available at http://projecteuclid.org.
The Electronic Journal of Probability is an open access journal publishing full-length research articles in probability theory. Electronic Communications in Probability is an open access journal publishing short research articles in probability theory. Both publish papers in all areas of probability, “only accepting papers of high quality in terms of both scientific contents and the presentation of the results.”
For the past twenty years, the Electronic Journal of Probability and Electronic Communications in Probability have helped shape the field of probability theory as two of the longest-published open access journals in this area of mathematics. Both journals’ archives, as well as all future volumes, will be available at http://projecteuclid.org, joining over 1.4 million pages of openly available scholarship in mathematics and statistics on the Project Euclid platform.
Project Euclid’s ongoing partnership with the Bernoulli Society and the IMS is a fulfilment of Project Euclid’s mission to support sustainable independent and society publishing in mathematics and statistics. “The long-standing partnership between the IMS, the Bernoulli Society, and Project Euclid is evidence of the viability of sustainable, not-for-profit STEM publishing models,” says David Ruddy, Director of Information Technology for Project Euclid.
“Project Euclid is proud to serve as a new home for the Electronic Journal of Probability and Electronic Communications in Probability.”

Entire CBMS Monograph Series Available in Project Euclid

Project Euclid is delighted to announce that the entire NSF–CBMS Regional Conference Series in Probability and Statistics is now available at http://projecteuclid.org/cbms.
The lecture notes in this series cover a variety of essential topics in mathematical statistics ranging from probability models to process theory.
This series is co-published by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the American Statistical Association. It is sponsored by the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences and supported by the National Science Foundation. All volumes are openly accessible through Project Euclid, with print editions also available for purchase.


About Project Euclid

Project Euclid is a collaborative partnership between Cornell University Library and Duke University Press, which seeks to advance scholarly communication in theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics through partnerships with independent and society publishers. It was created to provide a platform for small publishers of scholarly journals to move from print to electronic in a cost-effective way.

Through a combination of support by subscribing libraries and participating publishers, Project Euclid has made 70% of its journal articles available as open access. Project Euclid provides access to over 1.4 million pages of open-access content.

In 1999, Cornell University Library received a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the development of an online publishing service designed to support the transition for small, non-commercial mathematics journals from paper to digital distribution. Duke University Press, which had experience in putting its own math journals online and a similar interest in assisting non-commercial math journals, worked as Cornell’s partner in developing the grant application and then in developing Project Euclid’s publishing model.

Cornell launched Project Euclid in May 2003 with nineteen journals. In July 2008, Cornell University Library and Duke University Press established a joint venture and began co-managing Project Euclid. Duke assumed responsibility for “marketing, financial, and order fulfillment workflows” while Cornell continued to provide and support Project Euclid’s IT infrastructure.

Currently, Project Euclid hosts both open access journals and monographs, as well as its Prime collection of peer-reviewed titles. At the time of writing, there are 82 journal titles, from 48 publishers from around the world.

In 2011, Project Euclid received the 2011 Division Award from the Physics-Astronomy-Mathematics Division of the Special Libraries Association. Given annually, this award recognizes significant contributions to the literature of physics, mathematics, or astronomy, and honors work that demonstrably improves the exchange of information within these three disciplines. The award also takes into consideration projects that benefit libraries.

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
