Open Access Community Investment Program Pilot Participant: Combinatorial Theory

Combinatorial Theory is participating in the LYRASIS Open Access Community Investment Program (OACIP). The program's goal is to help match libraries, consortia, foundations, departments and other prospective scholarly publishing funders with non-profit publishers and journal editorial boards that are seeking financial investments to sustain or transition journals or books to Open Access (OA) publishing.

About Combinatorial Theory

Combinatorial Theory is a new open access mathematics journal that will publish papers in Combinatorics, an active area of mathematical research with applications throughout the mathematical, computational and natural sciences. Combinatorial Theory is owned by mathematicians who believe in the importance of unfettered access to research as a means of engaging the global combinatorial community. As such, it is an open access publication, with no fees for authors or readers.

Combinatorial Theory will embark on an inclusive vision that is international in scope, with a diverse editorial team seeking top research papers from combinatorial mathematicians worldwide. The journal is committed to fairness and mitigation of implicit biases in its selection processes, including double-blind refereeing. This makes it a pioneer among mathematics research journals.

Combinatorial Theory will be published on University of California’s eScholarship platform, managed by the California Digital Library (CDL), and will use EditFlow for its submission and peer review workflows. eScholarship Publishing provides comprehensive publication services for University of California-affiliated departments, research units, publishing programs, and individual scholars who seek to publish original, open access journals, books, conference proceedings, and other scholarship.

Investment Criteria



Each OACIP participant completes a standardized form which asks for the criteria that libraries and other investors require in order to make investment decisions. These criteria will provide transparency around issues important to investors in this space.
