About the Journal

The Journal of the Assam Academy of Mathematics (JAAM) (Print ISSN 2229-3884) is the flagship journal of the Assam Academy of Mathematics and publishes original research articles as well as well-written expository papers on all branches of pure and applied mathematics. The journal is devoted to research in mathematics in its broadest sense (which includes aspects of theoretical computer science, mathematical finance, economics and mathematical physics).

All articles will be published free of charge and available for download under an Open Access license.

Focus and Scope

JAAM is a fully-refereed electronic journal with high standards, publishing papers of substantial content and interest in all branches of pure and applied mathematics. The journal promotes research in pure mathematics as well as the integration of mathematics with other scientific disciplines. The mathematical content of papers should be substantial and not merely descriptive. All published articles are subject to rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by independent and expert referees.

Peer Review Process

All published papers are refereed to the highest standard, to ensure that they are original, correct and substantial.  The median time from submission to publication is 6 months. Please do not send queries about the progress of your paper if it has been under consideration for less than 6 months.

Publication Frequency

JAAM publishes one regular volume per year, but occasionally special issues are also published. Papers are published as soon as they are accepted and typeset.

Open Access Policy

JAAM is free for both authors and readers.

The Editorial Process

  1. The Editor-in-Chief assigns your paper to one of the Associate Editors.
  2. If your paper appears potentially acceptable, the Associate Editor will send it to one or more referees. In some cases, several rounds of refereeing may be required and you may be asked to make changes. This step can take from days to months, depending on the referees.
  3. If your paper still appears potentially acceptable when the refereeing process is complete, the Associate Editor will ask the Editor-in-Chief to consider your paper and make a final decision on whether to accept it or not.
  4. If your paper is accepted, you will be asked to provide a new version in the format of the journal (see the Author Guidelines). At this stage, source files in LaTeX and any supplementary files (e.g. figures) must be submitted.
  5. The Journal Manager will allocate your paper a number and may make further minor formatting changes with the help of an Editorial Assistant. Your paper will then be published approximately 1-4 weeks after you provided your final version. You will be specifically notified when it is published.


JAAM is owned by the Assam Academy of Mathematics (AAM) and the General Secratary of AAM published JAAM.

Conflict of Interest Policy for Referees

  2. She/He/They has/have a joint research grant with one of the authors, or is applying for or is considering applying for such a grant.
  3. She/He/They is collaborating with one of the authors on a topic closely related to the topic of the paper.
  4. One of the authors is a former or current research student of her/him/them.
  5. One of the authors works in the same department as her/him/them.
  6. One of the authors is a former PhD or postdoctoral supervisor of her/him/them.

Resubmission of a rejected paper

JAAM has no income and no paid employees and the site is maintained by the Journal Manager on behalf of AAM.

Our papers are carefully reviewed by anonymous referees who give generously of their time and their expertise. We gratefully acknowledge their essential contributions.

We thank the Theory of Computing and Discrete Analysis for their LaTeX template which has been modified for use. We thank the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics for paving the path for fully online open access journals and also for some of the text used in this website.
