Mathematika is owned by University College London and published by the London Mathematical Society. All surplus income from the publication of Mathematika is passed on to the Society to be used to support mathematicians and mathematics research in the form of research grants, conference grants, prizes, initiatives for early career researchers and the promotion of mathematics.
Mathematika publishes both pure and applied mathematical articles and has done so continuously since its founding by Harold Davenport in the 1950s.
The traditional emphasis has been towards the purer side of mathematics but applied mathematics and articles addressing both aspects are equally welcome. The journal, which is published by the London Mathematical Society, on behalf of its owners, University College London, will continue to publish research papers of the highest mathematical quality.
