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.
