American Journal of Mathematics is a bimonthly mathematics journal published by the Johns Hopkins University Press, founded in 1878 by James Joseph Sylvester. It is the oldest mathematical journal in the Western Hemisphere in continuous publication. [1] The Journal has earned its reputation by presenting pioneering mathematical papers. It does not specialize, but instead publishes articles of broad appeal covering the major areas of contemporary mathematics.

1. ^ The first American mathematics journal was the Mathematical Correspondent founded in 1804. It and and other subsequent journals lasted for only a short period. The Analyst (1874-1883) has the distinction of longevity. JSTOR states this journal was "continued" by the Annals of Mathematics.
