Mathematical Publishing: A Guidebook available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- American Mathematical Society
Every mathematician is involved in publishing. Throughout our careers, we are expected to publish our work: in journals, conference proceedings and books. Later, we may be called to serve as an editor for a journal or book series. However, our training is for doing the mathematics, not publishing it. Here, finally, is a guidebook to the publishing of mathematics. It describes both the general setting of mathematical publishing and the specifics of all the various publishing situations a mathematician may encounter. As with Steven Krantz's other books, the style is engaging and frank. He provides insight on getting your book published, getting organized as an editor, and what to do when things go wrong. He describes the people of publishing, the language of publishing (including a glossary), and the process of publishing both books and journals. Steven G. Krantz is an accomplished mathematician and an award-winning author. He has published more than 130 research articles and 45 books. He has worked as an editor of several book series, research journals and the AMS Notices, and founded the journal, The Journal of Geometric Analysis. Other titles by Steven Krantz available from the AMS are How to Teach Mathematics, A Primer of Mathematical Writing, A Mathematician's Survival Guide, and Techniques of Problem Solving.
