About Celebratio Mathematica

Cel­eb­ra­tio Math­em­at­ica is a new open-ac­cess schol­arly web pub­lic­a­tion that cel­eb­rates math­em­at­ics and re­lated fields, and their people. Cel­eb­ra­tio Math­em­at­ica is struc­tured as a series of col­lec­ted-works volumes or, rather, en­hanced guides to the col­lec­ted works of se­lec­ted sci­ent­ists, with the ad­ded ad­vant­ages of elec­tron­ic me­dia.

Cel­eb­ra­tio Math­em­at­ica or­gan­izes, dis­plays and pre­serves bio­graph­ic and bib­li­o­graph­ic in­form­a­tion, in­dex­ing all doc­u­ments deemed worthy of in­clu­sion in a col­lec­ted-works volume. These can in­clude un­pub­lished doc­u­ments, let­ters, in­ter­views, and more—pos­sibly even host­ing those works for which re­pub­lish­ing rights can be se­cured. Cel­eb­ra­tio Math­em­at­ica will also in­clude com­ment­ar­ies on the sci­ent­ists’ work, pho­to­graphs, testi­mo­ni­als, var­ied mem­or­ab­il­ia, and in­form­a­tion on his or her gradu­ate stu­dents.

Cel­eb­ra­tio Math­em­at­ica’s in­de­pend­ent ed­it­or­i­al board chooses the sci­ent­ists based on sci­entif­ic mer­it, schol­arly in­terest, and ed­it­or­i­al op­por­tun­ity.

Cel­eb­ra­tio Math­em­at­ica is sup­por­ted by MSP and pub­lic gen­er­os­ity.
