Mathematics in Science and Industry

The official Journal of CAIMS / SCMAI

Aims and scopes

Mathematics in Science and Industry (MSI) is the official journal of the Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematical Society / Societé Canadienne de Mathématique Appliquées et Industrielles (CAIMS/SCMAI). We invite contributions in all areas of applied and industrial mathematics.

MSI is an international journal that publishes mathematically innovative research papers and review papers on topics relevant to real-world applications. Typical mathematical methods include, but are not limited to: dynamical systems, ordinary, partial, and stochastic differential equations, variational methods, optimization, numerics, stochastic processes, probability, models of mathematical physics, mathematical finance, fluids, mechanics, mathematical biology, and mathematical medicine. Applications include physics, geophysics, finance, biology, microbiology, medicine, epidemiology, engineering, industrial applications, chemistry, nano-technologies, computer science, social sciences, and other sciences.

Articles in MSI contain a closing section (typically called Discussion or Conclusion) that relates the results to the application discipline in a format that is accessible to non-experts. Authors are encouraged to submit English and French abstracts, with the paper itself being in English.

MSI is published by the American Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS)


To help promote the new MSI journal, the official journal of CAIMS/SCMAI, please consider posting a flyer in your department or at appropriate events. Downloads are provided on Letter Paper or A4 Paper.
