The IMS recently entered into an agreement with the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) to print, distribute and market Annales de l’Institut Henri Poincaré (B) Probability and Statistics (AIHP). IHP will maintain full ownership, copyright and editorial control of the journal. The partnership allows both organizations to achieve greater economies of scale with their journals.
Alice Guionnet, AIHP editor-in-chief, noted, “I am very glad that it has been possible to come to this positive agreement with a trusted non-profit institution such as the IMS. I am confident that this move will be a success and that it will increase the confidence and reputation of our journal in our scientific community.”
Jim Pitman, IMS President, added, “The IMS is very pleased to be able to offer another high quality journal at a reasonable price. Subscribers can expect to see the price for AIHP fall significantly in 2008. In addition, authors will acquire new rights to post copies of their articles on their homepages and in open access digital repositories. We see this as an improvement for all involved with the AIHP: authors, libraries, IHP, and now the IMS.”
In addition to AIHP, the IMS will be offering the following journals to subscribers in 2008: Annals of Applied Probability, Annals of Probability, Annals of Applied Statistics, Annals of Stastistics, Bernoulli, and Statistical Science. Significant discounts will be available to libraries opting to subscribe to all the journals offered by the IMS. Subscriptions to individual journals will remain available.
The IMS is looking to forge future partnerships with other non-profit and scholarly society journals. If you are aware of an organization that would like assistance publishing or would like to market jointly with the IMS, please contact the IMS Executive Director, Elyse Gustafson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
