What is Project Euclid?
Project Euclid is an online content platform for mathematics and statistics literature. We host journals, book series, and conference proceedings and make this scholarship easy to use and easy to find for librarians and researchers.
We are a nonprofit, university-based venture jointly managed by Cornell University Library and Duke University Press In a publishing landscape increasingly dominated by the big commercial presses, Project Euclid's mission is to help smaller or not-for-profit publishers remain independent and competitive.

Is your publication right for Project Euclid?
There is no formal application process, but publications are vetted for quality and appropriateness before Project Euclid will host the content. In most cases, the publication should be indexed by MathSciNet or approved by members of Project Euclid's Advisory Board.
Publishers must also be able to meet some basic technical requirements, including the preparation of valid metadata for journal articles or book chapters. Project Euclid staff readily provides support and training. Some of our partners use production vendors, but most handle the requirements on their own.
