Mathematics relies on its journal literature as the main conduit for peer review and dissemination of research, and it does so more heavily and differently than other scientific fields. The conflict between universal access and the traditional subscription model that funds the journals has been debated for the past decade, while hard data on financial sustainability and usage under the different models has been slow to appear. However the last ten years have seen the move from print to the electronic version of journals becoming the version of record, and the workshop plans to take an evidence-based approach to discussing dissemination, access and usage of mathematics journals.
The workshop will discuss what is important and unique to the publishing of mathematical research articles and how we can best ensure that publishing practices support peer reviewed research in the long term. Much of the current discussion is taking place between funders and publishers, including learned societies, but not directly with mathematicians. A second goal is to see if we can find a consensus of opinion on what is important about journal publishing to mathematicians, i.e., where the balance lies between the desire for profits from publishing and the broader dissemination of research.
