The New York Journal of Mathematics is a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal. It has an editorial board which as of 2007, consists of 18 university-affiliated scholars in addition to the Editor-in-chief. It is, however, published entirely electronically (on the World Wide Web). It is listed in the Journals section of The Electronic Library of Mathematics.[1]

According to Mark Steinberger, one of the founding editors:

The papers are typeset in a traditional format, in accordance with the journal’s style sheet, and with the logo, the statement of copyright, ISSN, and pagination given on the first page.

Some proponents of electronic publication have urged changes in style, citing the low price of disk space as a rationale for publishing articles more loquacious than those commonly acceptable in a print medium. We decided to eschew this route, on the grounds that the perceived quality of our publications would be reduced. We feel it is important to follow the standards of consensus in the field. If these standards change in the future, we will change with them.[2]

The Journal is an open access journal—that is, its full content is available to anyone via the internet, without subscription or fee.

In a professional conference presentation, Renzo Piccinini said "An example of what I consider a good electronic journal is the New York Journal of Mathematics; this is a refereed journal--with referees not in the editor's board—with high quality papers and very fast publication time; last, but not least, it is free!"[3]
