American Mathematical Monthly

American Mathematical Monthly publishes articles, as
well as notes and other features, about mathematics and
the profession. Its readers span a broad spectrum of
mathematical interests, and include professional
mathematicians as well as students of mathematics at all
collegiate levels. Authors are invited to submit
articles and notes that bring interesting mathematical
ideas to a wide audience of MONTHLY readers.

American Mathematical Monthly readers expect a high
standard of exposition; they expect articles to inform,
stimulate, challenge, enlighten, and even entertain.
MONTHLY articles are meant to be read, enjoyed, and
discussed, rather than just archived. Articles may be
expositions of old or new results, historical or
biographical essays, speculations or definitive
treatments, broad developments, or explorations of a
single application. Novelty and generality are far less
important than clarity of exposition and broad appeal.
Appropriate figures, diagrams, and photographs are

Notes are short, sharply focused, and possibly informal.
They are often gems that provide a new proof of an old
theorem, a novel presentation of a familiar theme, or a
lively discussion of a single issue.

Full-text articles are available using JSTOR.
JSTOR coverage: Vols. 1-101, 1894-1994.
