*From Mark C. Wilson of the University of Auckland, a little public service announcement for anyone who’s ever been involved with a mathematical journal.*

Dear colleagues,

There is much dissatisfaction with the current state of research

publication, but little information on community attitudes and priorities.

I have started a survey which I hope you will fill in (I estimate 10-15

minutes, and it is completely anonymous). The results will be made publicly

available later this year. I hope that it will help to focus our efforts as

a community by allowing us to work toward broadly agreed goals. I want to

get as representative and as large a sample of the world mathematical

community as possible. Please forward to your local colleagues.Please answer this survey if and only if you have been involved with a

mathematical journal as editor, reviewer/referee, author or reader in the

last 3 years. By “mathematical” we also mean to include theoretical

computer science and mathematical statistics journals, and disciplinary

journals used by applied mathematicians. Essentially, any journal covered

by Mathematical Reviews qualifies.
