New editors for co-sponsored IMS journals

We announce the new editors of three of our co-sponsored journals.

Andreas Kyprianou will take over as editor of the Electronic Journal of Probability (from January 1, 2018 for three years), replacing Brian Rider. Giambattista Giacomin becomes the editor of Electronic Communications in Probability, replacing Sandrine Péché. Ben Hambly will serve a second term as the editor of Probability Surveys.

The Electronic Journal of Probability (EJP) publishes full-length research articles in probability theory. Short papers should be submitted first to its sister journal, Electronic Communications in Probability (ECP). EJP and ECP share the same editorial board, but with different Editors in Chief. EJP and ECP are open access official journals of IMS and the Bernoulli Society. Donations to the IMS Open Access Fund help to keep the journal free. Read EJP and ECP online at and These two journals have their recent papers listed in the Jan/Feb 2018 issue, on pages 6–9.

Probability Surveys publishes survey articles in theoretical and applied probability. The style of articles may range from reviews of recent research to graduate textbook exposition. Articles may be broad or narrow in scope. The essential requirements are a well specified topic and target audience, together with clear exposition. See

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
