An Interview with Geometry & Topology

According to a recent analysis of Essential Science IndicatorsSM data from Thomson Reuters, the journal Geometry & Topology is having a growing impact in the field of Mathematics. The journal's current record in the database includes 356 papers cited a total of 1,226 times from January 1, 1999 to December 31, 2009. Geometry & Topology is published by Mathematical Sciences Publishing, and its Managing Editors are Professor Colin Rourke of the University of Warwick in the UK and Professor Walter Neumann of Columbia University in New York City. 

ScienceWatch.com® talked to Professor Neumann about the history of the journal, its collaborative editorial review process, and why he feels it is having a growing impact in the field of mathematics. Neumann discusses Geometry & Topology’s path from an open access journal to one that employs rigorous peer review of a strong editorial board and how the fact that all final decisions on papers are “made by consensus of the whole editorial board” contributes to the journal’s leading role in its field.
