The Journal of Symbolic Logic publishes research in mathematical logic and its applications of the highest quality. Submissions are expected to exhibit innovation and not merely be minor variations on established work. They should also be of interest to a broad audience.
The Journal publishes only original papers that have not been published previously, and are not submitted for publication elsewhere. Full versions of important papers that have previously been published in conference proceedings are eligible for publication, provided that the submitted paper extends the prior publication in a significant way. In such cases, when authors submit a paper for publication in the JSL they are required to provide a precise reference to the prior publication and to explain how the submission differs from the conference version.
To be considered for publication, papers should be prepared following the JSL Author Guidelines. Authors should also review the Journal’s policy on Publication Ethics. Final decisions to accept papers are made by The Journal editorial board as a whole.
The Journal was founded in 1936, and is issued quarterly. Volume 83, being published during 2018, will consist of approximately 1744 pages.
