Preparation and submission of manuscripts
Research, expository or survey articles are solicited in any branch of pure or applied mathematics or mathematical statistics. Papers must be submitted in English, with a short abstract and AMS subject-classification codes, either to the Editor, or to an appropriate member of the Editorial Board; in either case the member of the Board will decide whether to forward the article to an independent referee for comment and evaluation. Manuscripts should be submitted as an AMS-TEX file by electronic mail or disk. Authors are asked to certify that their contributions have not been submitted simultaneously to any other journal.
The NZ Journal of Mathematics is being published electronically only from 2007; hardcopies are no longer available. Very few hard copies of back issues for either the New Zealand Journal of Mathematics or its predecessor the Mathematical Chronicle are available. Enquire to the Treasurer at the address above. For electronic access refer to the next paragraph.
Open access policy
Since 2007, the NZ Journal of Mathematics has made electronic copies of its articles freely available on this website by following the links below. The Journal adheres to the Budapest Open Access Initiative's definition of open access: that users have the right to "read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles." Complete electronic sets of back issues of the Mathematical Chronicle and the New Zealand Journal of Mathematics are available through the Library of the University of Auckland.
Copyright and Republication
The NZ Journal of Mathematics does not claim copyright for material published; copyright remains with the author. If a third party wishes to reproduce part or all of an article appearing in the Journal then that party is asked to attribute the source as the New Zealand Journal of Mathematics with the volume, year and page numbers as appropriate.
The Kalman Prize for the best paper published in the NZJM
The NZJM Committee is pleased to be able to announce the establishment of an annual prize for the best paper published in the NZJM over the preceding five years.
This Prize is named after John Kalman, who was one of the founders of the Mathematical Chronicle, the predecessor of the NZJM, and a leading promoter of New Zealand mathematics. The Prize is generously supported by a grant from the Margaret and John Kalman Charitable Trust.
The recipient of the prize shall be determined by a committee appointed by the Editor and informed following the decision. No correspondence will be entered into regarding the award.
The Kalman Prize was first awarded in 2014. The prize winner in 2014 was Dr Cédric Bonnafé, Directeur de Recherche au CNRS based within the Institut de Mathématiques et de Modélisation de Montpellier, France. The prize was awarded for his paper Semicontinuity properties of Kazhdan-Lusztig cells, which appeared in volume 39 (2009), 171-192. More information about the author and the paper and the author’s response may be found here.
The NZJM is pleased to announce the second winner of the Kalman Prize. Dr Jack O. Button is a Fellow at Selwyn College, University of Cambridge. His research interests are in Combinatorial and Geometric Group Theory, especially properties of fundamental groups of 3-manifolds and related groups. The prize is awarded for his paper Virtual Finite Quotients of Finitely Generated Groups, which appeared in volume 41 (2011), 1-15. More information about the paper may be found here.
