Join The Waterloo Mathematics Review

As an Editor or Reviewer

The Waterloo Mathematics Review is a new publication at the University of Waterloo. It is an undergraduate run journal, aspiring to be the mathematical equivalent of a law review. I, along with some faculty and graduate student advisors, am in the process of organizing the journal for the inaugural volume. We are looking to start with three co-editors-in-chief. What would being an EIC entail? First, the standard journal operations tasks: reading submitted articles, giving them basic proofreads, assigning them to reviewers (either undergraduate or faculty), collecting reviewer reports, liaising with submitters, answering correspondence, making the final judgment call on what articles to publish, finishing the typesetting/online formatting, and basically anything else the journal requires. I honestly can't give an hours per week estimate for this commitment because it hasn't started yet. If you are interested in creating a new mathematical publication and have the time and dedication, please contact me at

For people with less time on their hands but still willing to contribute to the new journal consider volunteering your time as a reviewer. Reviewers assist the editorial board by vetting submissions for mathematical correctness as well as compositional quality. With enough reviewers the commitment of any one reviewer would be no more than 2 articles per term. The goal is to have the vast majority (if not all) of the submissions reviewed by undergraduates. If you are passionate about mathematics and would like experience reading and editing mathematical articles please contact me at

Finally if you're interested in submitting an article, be patient. Once we have an editorial board formed we will put out a call for papers, keep your eyes open. If you're interested in helping in any other way, please contact me at and let me know what you can do.
