About the Journal

Focus and Scope

Aims and Scope
The Journal of Nigerian Mathematical Society is a refereed mathematics' journal and offers an effective method of bringing quickly to the public original research articles, review articles as well as short communications, with emphasis on unsolved problems and open questions in mathematical subjects. All areas listed on the cover of Mathematical Reviews, such as pure and applied mathematics, mathematical physics, computational theory, theoretical mechanics, theoretical biology, probability and mathematical statistics, are included within the scope of the Journal of the Nigerian Mathematical Society.

Peer Review Process

JNMS provides a means of communication and exchange of ideas among workers in mathematical sciences (mathematics, mathematical physics, statistics, computer science), and offers an effective method of bringing new results quickly to the public. By doing so the journal establishes an informal vehicle enabling the field of mathematical sciences to be understood in a broad sense. It will include theoretical and experimental results, and fundamental and practical research.

Publication Frequency

This journal is published 3 times a years

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Journal History


In February 1980, a total of six two (62) mathematicians from almost all existing Nigerian Universities, Colleges of Technology (now Polytechnic and colleges of Education) inaugurated the Nigerian Mathematical Society (NMS) at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. The organization, devoted to the promotion, dissemination and application of researches in Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences has grown over the years to be a reputable and formidable academic society recognized not only in Africa, but also all over the world. The Nigerian Mathematical Society has reciprocity agreements with established mathematical society like the American Mathematical Society (AMS), London Mathematical Society, and others in Europe.

The aim of the society is to promote mathematical research and application through:
i.      holding of conference, symposia, workshops, etc,
ii.     publishing of Journal of the Nigerian Mathematical Society (JNMS) and other publications of high quality,
iii.    awarding of prizes for outstanding mathematical research especially to young mathematicians and
iv.     cooperating/affiliating with other bodies with similar aims as those of the society.
