ISMS publishes, both online and print, Scientiae Mathematicae Japonicae(SCMJ)which is the unified series of Mathematica Japonica (M.j.) and Scientiae Mathematicae(SCM).Accepted papers will be published first in SCMJ online with no lead-time after acceptance (or typesetting). Then the papers will appear on the SCMJ printed version after several months.
The features of SCMJ are:
1) The Editorial Board of SCMJ consists of the distinguished researchers including 40 foreign professors. Authors are to submit their papers directly to an editor, which enables prompt refereeing and publication.
2) Every issue has original papers submitted by famous mathematical scientists and every printed issue has a very interesting expository paper submitted by the internationally famous mathematical scientists in the section International Plaza.
3) SCMJ is distributed to many libraries in the word. All papers are reviewed on Math.
Review and Zentrallblatt.
ISMS International Video Conference of Mathematical Sciences(IVMS):
The ISMS has set up a video conferencing system which can connect up to four sites of a research group in the same or different countries in the world.Using this system,speakers of the session can write on a white board or an OHP sheet or use PowerPoint.On the other hand participants can ask questions or make comments.All these are performed similarly to the traditional meetings.Organizers of sessions chair their co-ordination sites.To connect with our system,you can use your own videoconferencing system only if it satisfies the International Telecommunication Union-Technical Comittee Standards(ITU-T Standard,See page i).
